Can't get rid of Norton

Just transferred contents of old Macbook pro to new one, which has the latest version of Snow Leopard. Along with everything came the usual Norton mess (should never have bought it). A search of the new computer reveals no Norton or Symantec files, which I have read is not unusual. I have run Norton's uninstall app. It too finds no files to remove.
At start up I get a series of five identical error messages referring to the Auto-protect not working. OK...I close those five and five more of the same pop up.
I have read a number of postings on this problem but have not read about a solution. Does anyone out there have one?

see this post by Andreas. AFAIK, his script hasn't failed for anybody yet.

  • Can't get rid of Norton Utilities alert window

    I have successfully installed Leopard to my older G4 PowerPC (Mirrored Drive Doors). I trashed an older Norton Utilities (V.8); but I still get a message window shortly after boot up that states "Norton Utilities has detected a new version of Mac OS X. You may need to update your installed Norton Utilities or Norton SystemWorks components. Consult your system administrator." I've used Spotlight to search the entire hard drive so that I can trash anything related to the Norton program, but no success: each time that I boot up, I get the same message. Other than a minor annoyance (it goes away when I click "OK"), what can I do so that it won't appear in the future?

    Hi stankay-
    You definitely want to lose the Norton products.
    I believe that if you go to their website you can download an uninstaller program that will remove all of the files.

  • How do I get rid of Norton Icons in my system preferences?

    I'm having problems getting rid of Norton on my new MacBook Pro. I foolishly transferred applications from my old G4 with Migration assistant and it transferred my old Norton Internet Security which dates from 2003-2004. I deleted everything I could find, but my computer is still running slow and I get messages when I boot up that the various Norton programs can't open and I should reintall them. The Symantec uninstaller tool can't find any Norton applications on my computer and when I search the hard drive for Norton or Symantec I find nothing. Still, there are two icons on my System Preferences panel, and I'm wondering if I manage to remove these, it will get rid of the last wisps of Norton. Any ideas?

    Since it is a new machine, if I were you, I would do a full "Erase and Install" and start over.
    BTW, you should really be in a 10.5 or MacBook Pro forum.
    Good Luck.

    When I search for solutions, I find several references to the backup feature of Norton 360. There also were references to MozyHome and McAfee.

  • I went to Firefox extentions to remove facesmooch, but there isn't any extensions listed, how else can i get rid of it?

    I downloaded a free youtube downloader and told it I didn't want facesmooch, but it installed it anyway and now I can't get rid of it. I have tried going to the add-ons manager and removing it from the extensions, but there are no extensions listed, it isn't in add/remove programs, the file I downloaded isn't a folder so I can't "get in to it", and I have uninstalled and deleted all content related to the youtube downloader. Please help me get rid of facesmooch.

    Sounds like some form of ad-aware.
    Boot up your pc in safe mode w/ networking, open FF and type "about:plugins" in the url address bar. Take note of anything that looks like it may be associated w/ "Facemooch". Close FF and do a search for any malicious looking files listed under the plugin section and append "bak" to the extension. You may need to open task manager prior to doing this to ensure the file isn't running, if "rundll32.exe or a malicious looking file, a simple search should be able to determine this, end the task prior to changing the extension (ie. somefile.dll.bak) <- this can be changed in the search wizard.
    Fire up msconfig while your still in Safe Mode, and uncheck any startup programs that are of unknown origin. (this does not delete anything, but just keeps it from booting at startup) msconfig should be available from the run command, just type in "msconfig" and enter.
    norton also has a freeware program called "autorun", very useful in stopping malicious files in their tracks.
    Most file validity can usually be determined by the directory they are lying in, for example, most viruses or malicious programs tend to load themselves into the c://windows/system32 directory or root directory (synonym).

  • Can't get rid of a TX - message keeps appearing and being processed by OSB

    I have some sort of a poison message or TX I can't flush. Every 10 seconds I get a log message like the second one below, and the number of pending messages in multiple places and OSB proxy service messages processed keep climbing - all without producing any new messages on my part. I've tried deleting the default server store on the OSB managed server and the filestore for the JMS server. No luck.
    When this first started happening, the error messages looked like the first one below. Something I did caused the change, I assume. However, it's the same TX ID throughout.
    So, first, how can I get rid of this thing? It's driving me nuts and keeping me from closing out a POC.
    Second, why is it happening? I have one suspicion - could it be because that somehow we configured mutiple domains with the same name for a distributed application? It's not my normal practice but it happened. These domains don't communicate directly, but there are domains that need to communicate with both. So I'm guessing the name ambiguity may be hurting us. Just a guess, though.
    In this case, the sgosb domain's proxy service (this domain name is unique) is receiving messages from a queue resident in the pega_domain in Singapore and another proxy service is putting a message to another queue in the pega_domain in the UK. This is not in a single TX; the first proxy service forwards the message to a queue in the sgosb_domain, the second proxy service gets that message and puts it into the other pega_domain. It's an XA TX for each proxy service.
    Just to make it more fun, the sgosb_domain has another proxy service reading from a different queue and forwarding it to a queue in the third pega_domain in the US.
    TIA for any help or insight.
    Oh yes, the OSB domain is WLS 10.3.4, while the pega_domains are WLS 10.3.2

    Tom,
    Thanks! Succinct and easy to understand as ever.
    Yup, that covers it - I had also just seen this in the docs after looking at atheek1's earlier response (thanks to him/her as well). It's covered almost as clearly there as you state it here (http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11035_01/wls100/jta/trxcon.html).
    While the ESB domains meet all of those requirements (except for cross-domain security configuration), each of the other two sets of domains (3 in each set) do not meet the naming uniqueness criteria for domain and server names; they do for JMS server names. I saw the store names in the TX identifier string as included resource, and assumed they might play a part - that's why I changed them. As you say, an unnecessary change. Oh well - it was an easy one.
    My normal practice has been for unique names in the past, due to problems I had years ago with cross-domain JMS traffic in an earlier WLS version. I guess it's the wrong time to have forgotten that lesson.
    Does anyone know of a quick way of changing a domain name quickly without rebuilding the domain? In the past WLST resulted in incomplete copies for me, is that still a problem? Server names are easy, just some global search-and-replace in the config.xml file (and in the management scripts, too)

    I'm still not clear about what you mean about unlocking your phone. Normally, "unlocking" means entering the password if the phone is locked, which you should be able to do from the phone itself. If you want more help with this, you really need to take the time to furnish all the relevant details.
    I have a MacBook Pro, and yes when I connect my iPhone on it it shows up in the devices list.
    When you do that & click on the iPhone in the list, then click on the "Apps" tab at the top, do you see the apps you can't update listed there? If you click on the "Store" menu item does it show near the bottom that you are logged in with your own Apple ID?
    As wjosten said, it sounds like one way or another, the apps you cannot update were obtained using your friend's Apple ID. You need to delete them from your phone & try buying them again. If they were in fact paid for with your own Apple ID you won't have to pay again; otherwise you will.
