The Norton Internet Security software is
installed while surfing the intenet without

Adminstartive powers to make changes to
windows progms. I have only standrad account
and have not created any Administrative
accout in my computer.Will some one guide me
how I can uninstall this very annoying prog
and please also guide me how to restict such
programmes not to have any access to make any
changes to my computer.
I use win 7 ultimate and Kaspersky antivirus.

Welcome
I would just make an administrative account and uninstall.
You can also use the built in adminstrator.
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable[2]=User Accounts
To make sure that this does not happen again, make sure that UAC is turned on.
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings
You might, also, want to download and use Win Patrol. It will notify you of any changes that are being made.

The software is so good, that I have the paid version, but the free will suit you just fine.

I will assume that from an adminstrators account you used the unistaller suggested by JMH (good call Jan). When you are ready for the uninstaller, right click on it and then run as administrator.
If that does not work, try in safe mode.

Sometimes Norton complains if you uninstall in the "wrong" order. Live update and AV are tightly linked.

JHM's post points you to Norton's own Norton cleanup.

padasalgi,

I'm curious.
You say you are running Kaspersky by choice & having trouble uninstalling Norton...

Did your computer come pre installed with another Anti Virus program?
If so what & how did you uninstall it?

What other Security software are you running?
