Question from Dagan F.: Hi Rick. I’ve been using Norton 360 for years, but it has let a bunch of viruses slip through and get installed on my computer.

Norton will remove a bunch of viruses every time I run it but they just keep coming right back.
The thing is I’m having a problem getting Norton 360 uninstalled so that I can install Avast. The Windows thingy that uninstalls programs got rid of some of the Norton files but some of them come right back when I reboot the computer.
How can I completely uninstall ALL the Norton files from my hard drive?
