I lost all of my Pin Apps, why I don’t know and I was unable to Pin any Apps. There was no upgrade being loaded and no evidence of a virus. So I decided to do a restore to any early time and I did. It took several hours to redo it’s thing plus reconstruct the registry. All was a success, it said, when it finished but I noticed this message. I did fail to turn off Norton before the recovery. However, all is fine with my PC and it runs better, with all my original Pins in place, than ever but what’s with this message and what can it affect? It may just be a fluke? I don’t plan another recovery as It takes too long and I view this one as a success.

If you're going to uninstall Norton, do not use the on-board uninstaller that comes with the program, as that leaves lots of orphans behind, which generally cause problems with getting Windows Security to enable.

Instead use the tool created by Norton themselves ... Download and run the Norton Remove and Reinstall tool for Windows ... and follow the instructions to "only remove your Norton device security product ".

Alternately, uninstall it using the free version of Revo Uninstaller ... Revo Uninstaller Free ... I generally recommend the portable version as you don't have to install it.

Revo Uninstaller acts as both a replacement and a supplement to the built-in functionality in Windows by first running the built-in uninstaller for the program, and then scanning for leftover data afterwards, making it your best choice when it comes to completely remove stubborn programs, temporary files, and other unnecessary program data that is left behind after the standard uninstall process.
