It looks like it was sucessfull. All the programs are back in the Uninstalled List. Thanks.
However, I think the article is great BUT there should be a note about Anti-Virus as the system restore failed beacuse an anti-virus program was running. I had 3 attempts after permanently unistalling Norton AV before working out the correct method!
First, I disabled Norton as the error message suggested but of course on re-boot it starts again. I then disable the service but still no luck so I removed it entirely! I'm about to load McAfee now as Norton was only a trial and I have a license for McAfee.
The Norton icons on desktop and in programmed were orphaned after reboot even though the program had been removed.
Thanks again for the advice!
