Generally speaking, the major files of Norton are uninstalled somehow. But if you still see those three folders C:Program FilesNorton, C:Program FilesSymantec and C:Program FilesCommon FilesSymantec Shared, the chances are Symantec Norton is not fully removed from your hard drive. You may delete its folders but its related registry entries, DLL files and driver still got stuck in your computer, which stops you installing new antivirus.
Since Norton scatters itself all over system registry, it’s believed that you would not take the risk to manually delete registry entries, for deleting registry entries by mistake will bring a disaster for you.
