Norton-uninstalling other virus checkers

  peterwemsley 25 Nov 11

I have an Asus netbook using Bullguard sucessfully for a year. Tried to install Norton (2011) and it discovered another virus checker "Trend" that it could not remove. I skipped this stage and sucessfully installed Norton. However I find that I cannot remove Trend manually even though I have started my PC in safe mode. Norton appears to be running OK despite this program still being on my PC

You should always uninstall any antivirus programs before installing a new one. I would suggest uninstalling Norton - then removing Trend using the following method

Remove Trend

and then replace Norton

Thank you Sea Urchin for your swift help.
I tried the fix but it did not work. I tried again and double checked whether my PC was 32 or 64 bit. Whilst doing this I checked on the 'Services tab' and noticed that it indicatted that 'Trend was running'. I unchecked this and then ran the normal uninstall from the control panel and this has removed Trend.
