    ah yes that was what i saw... so based on that description i guess it's best to remove Norton through Add/Remove programs...

    Not sure if it was answered for you or if I misunderstood, BUT, yes, remove Nortons Antivirus through add and remove programs, that will remove Live Update and Live Reg if applicable. The removal tool is for people having difficulties uninstalling it and\or to maybe remove some registry entries, though any good registry cleaner will probably do it better.

    yes thanks for the feedback... my friend removed Norton and instaleld AVG successfully... i will be doing the same thing once my Norton Subscription runs out this summer...

    think i'll notice any improvement in performance having switched from Norton to AVG?
