Question Uninstall Norton Av!

Hi guys!

I want to uninstall my Norton Antivirus pro 2003 and install NOD32 or Kaspersky V.5 antivirus!
I have the Norton Internet security 2003 installed on my PC!

I read that Symantec Antivirus is very difficult to uninstall!

I would like to know, how can I uninstall my Norton AV 2003 and clean all the traces of it?

There is some kind of software that does this?

Please, I need your help!

Thanks!

Uninstall it normally through add/remove programs. Then load regedit, and do a search for Norton and delete all traces of it.

There is a program called RNav if the uninstall wont work

Description:
rnav.exe is a utility produced by Symantec designed for removing it's product. This program is non-essential process to the running of the system, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems
