It didn't quite end there. Where I thought Norton was completly uninstalled, for some reason it was still running as McAfee complained about it and could not remove it. No service was running. I tried physiclly deleting the Norton directory but could not as something was still running in the background.

Anyway, I downloaded again Norton 2010 to get protected again which got round the problem. Long winded, but for the time being I'm up and running again.

I will have to uninstall again and try McAfee once the trial is over which will be interesting!

As I said - use the Norton removal tool. See my post above.
