How do I disable a Norton activation on my netbook?

I just received my Gateway NightSky LT3119u and the first thing that pops up on screen is an activation. The close button is a faded! What do I do?

Reboot your computer and try again. Also, be sure to use the Norton removal tool: Download Norton Removal Tool 2012.0.5.15 Free - A program that can remove some Norton software from your computer - Softpedia
