& you aren't alone Kevin...That's what Norton (Symantec) counts on! (It's always more convenient to just hand your lunch money over to the school bully than it is to stand up to him!)
I wonder what would happen if we all wrote to HP, Dell, Compaq, etc & said that we will refuse to buy any of their products if Norton is not made easy to remove?
Better still, how about this:.... I will never again buy a new computer (at Best Buy or wherever) without making a condition of my purchase that their techs uninstall Norton, (at no charge) BEFORE I take the computer home)
I suggest we all do the same. (Norton will get the message from the retailers who have to spend an hour per sale uninstalling the garbage)
