I am wondering what is the easiest way to remove pre-installed but unopened Norton AV from a new computer, it is a standard DELL installation as part of the package.

Control Panel, Add or Remove programs.

If that doesn't work click here=

Just to confirm.

I had this apparent problem on a new laptop a couple of weeks ago.

It seems that the NAV is not really installed at this stage, so whatever is in the Add/Remove per VOG and then 007al's bit shifted it all just fine.

If the package is opened though, that is likely to be a whole different problem!
