Go directly to 100% disable Kaspersky ( you will re-enable later), best would be to 100% uninstall Kaspersky.

Now use the link given to you by JMH to fetch and run the Norton Removal Tool.

After removing Norton, then uninstall the adobe product.

With those two out of the way, reinstall kaspersky.

What version of Kaspersky and which Kaspersky product are you using?

I am using Kaspersky Internet Security 2011.
I am unable to find a suitable Norton Internet Security Removable tool in the following link.
https://www-secure.symantec.com/nort...=1&pvid=f-home
Norton Internet Security now installed is version 19.7.1.5
This is not purchased by me.
In case removal of Noroton is such a big combersome task please guide me how to block this from booting/opening while win 7 boots.
Thanks

How did Adobe install Norton. I never heard of that.

Ditto on that. Can't see why Adobe would want your money to go anywhere other than Adobe.

I think I would start here and then try and get rid of Norton:

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Other than that I'd go with a clean install, especially considering there are no restore points available.

That's what I was thinking when I stumbled across this thread last night. Although I had never heard of one that actually used the Norton name. But you never know what lengths they'll resort to.

IMHO by far the quickest & neatest way to have your computer up & running would be to do a clean install.

A clean installation consists of removing all data from the hard disk by reformatting & reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.

This can be less "messy" than disinfecting a computer to try to remove malware / correct problems etc.

padasalgi,

Noticing your country plus the Adobe peculiarity (whith to be honest, I just assumed you had a poor memory), then my recommendation is:

Run WDO. The link for WDO is in my signature. After, and only after, a full scan by WDO, will I be ready to continue.

Sometimes software gets installed with our knowledge, we just don't pay close enough attention. I know Adobe tries to sneak these in with their software (could be Norton, McAfee, Google, Yahoo....). There's a dialog displayed or a checkbox marked and we, being human think "Hey that must be ok, I'm on a reputable site.... go ahead install whatever you think is best"

These are usually toolbar add-ons. Perhaps if you manage the add-ons in your browser(s) you might find what you're looking for. It's worth a shot, eh wot?

The links provided for the Norton Removal Tool (NRT) work for me, I'm just not sure the NRT handles the toolbar - it should, but I dunno.

Nobody ever reads these things, let alone the screen in front of them. I admit, I've been guilty as charged too.
