Default vista and Norton

I have a new sony VGN SZ460N/C Laptop (with vista)that came with a norton sixty day free trial. I had actually tried to install mccafee but it ended up creating problems which led to me restore my PC.

I now have the norton 360 which i am trying to install but it keeps asking me to unistall the 60 day norton software which i have tried several times to uninstall but it keeps telling me-"the specified module cannot be found"
please i need assistance on how to uninstall the 60 day and install the new one i just downloaded from norton.

Thanks

Hello,

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool:

I used to use Norton Antivirus. But like many, I prefer using a free antivirus program like AVG and Avast!, primarily because they are less demanding on system resources.
