I am running Windows XP I used to have norton as my antivirus and firewall a couple years ago but had some trouble with it and had to get rid of it. now for the problem. Im trying to download a free version of EZ trust from roadrunner when I try ot bring it down it tells me that I still have a piece of norton firewall on my computor. I thought I got rid of a long time ago. now that I have found it I CAN'T get rid of it . I tryed booting up in safe mode to do but didnt work. any know how to get rid of this thing? when I try a window comes up telling me that it is corrupt or it is being used by something else. thanks

Do you know the file names that you are trying to delete?
If so you can use Move on boot, It doesn't load all the Windows
system files before deleting or moving the file.

Site uses frames http://www.gibinsoft.net/
Direct dl link http://www.gibinsoft.net/gipoutils/bin/moveonb.exe

From my experience Norton leaves a lot of registry information when
it is removed and you will need to search and remove the references.
Warning that if you accidently remove a registry key that is used by
Windows you could have problems. You can always export it to somewhere if you are not sure.

I managed to get rid of norton by using a program called Regseeker on the registry. it showed me how much norton stuff i really had and was able to get rid of it
