I would not let it any where near my machine.

I cannot tell you the amount of computers that I have formatted just because Norton is on their computer. Somehow these user get it in their head that Norton is the best and they'll stick with that bloated piece of crap.

When I finally do convice them to remove it, it screws up thier computer beyond fixing. Obviously I have told them to stop doing that, but when I see brand new computers with it, I urge them to format it before they start using thier new computer.

FORMAT only at last resort.

Why format when Symantec-Nortons has a FREE program to totally clean. which removes evertything... (RNAV). much faster and 100% effective.
also almost ever program maker has a "how to clean" for there product, if you can not find, then use a 3rd party "total clean-remove" . I have used these programs since Win95 and they still work on Win7-7106.

FORMAT is a very nasty word.

Well, think about it this way.. A new computer comes with a lot of other bloatware as well.

I agree lots of trial bloated crap.
That is why a good 3rd party complete uninstaller and a good reg cleaner and a must for a computer tech (anybody) to have. Next is a very good and FAST defrag program. I carry all my (needed items) on a flash drive .

Nothing is better than a fresh registry, but which programs do you use?

recommended by MVP - via MS blogs.

Vista Manager works very well, for Vista and Win7
XP Manager for XP
REGCURE works very well,
RegVac works very well,
AusLogics BoostSpeed works well - it also removes all passwords.
and has a nice JUNk cleaner also.
