    Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs. Uninstall 'Norton Spyware Scan' from there. Then uninstall the Yahoo toolbar too. After that, reinstall Yahoo Toolbar again, without including Norton. Thats it!!!!!! Happy New Year!!

    Here is the right way to remove it.

    Generally, you remove applications by using the Windows utility for the task, but Norton Antivirus tends to get in a bit deeper into the system, so it's tricker to remove it completely. Here's how you can do that:

    Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs.

    Scroll down to your Norton program

    Click Change --> Remove All.

    You will be asked to restart your PC. Do so.

    Now go to Start --> My Computer --> Program Files. Right click on each Symantec folder and select Delete.

    While you are in Program Files go to the Common Files folder at or near the top of the Program Files window. Delete every Symantec folder there. And, again, restart your PC.

    Go to Start --> Search --> All Files and Folders --> More Advanced Options. Check each option except for "Case sensitive"

    Now type in Norton and delete each Norton folder from the search results (Again, right click, choose "Delete"). One more time, restart your PC.

    Repeat step 5 except type Symantec in the "Search" box.

    The next step is trickier: go into the Registry.

    First thing to do is Back up the Registry. I'll be saying more about the Registry later. But suffice it to say that the presence of uninstalled security software in the Registry can conflict with newly installed security software and cause system freezes. So can folders of "uninstalled" programs for that matter.

    Once again, go to Start, then click on "Run". Type in "regedit"

    Go to the top of the Regedit window. Click (+) next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Go down the thread until you see Software. Click on Software and scroll down the thread until you see Symantec. Right click on Symantec and choose "Delete".

    From there go down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and repeat step 3. Restart your PC.

    Click (+) next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, now: Click (+) next to Software, Click (+) next to Microsoft, Click (+) next to Windows and Click (+) next to CurrentVersion.

    Select the Run folder. Right-click and delete each Symantec entry you see (if present). Restart your PC.

    That should completely eradicate Norton Antivirus from your system!

    Note: Symantec offers an uninstaller for NAV (Norton Antivirus) 5.0/2000

    How do I add or remove buttons from my Yahoo! Toolbar?

    Note: You must be signed in to Yahoo! to see your customized buttons on the toolbar. You can sign in by clicking "Sign In" or signing in to any Yahoo! property (Mail, My Yahoo!, etc.) If you're not signed in you'll see the default toolbar.

    To add or remove buttons from your Yahoo! Toolbar, do the following:

    Make sure you have a working Internet connection.

    Open a new browser window and select "Add/Edit Buttons" from the Personal Options menu under the Pencil menu of the toolbar.

    Check the box next to the buttons you want to appear on your toolbar.

    Uncheck any checked boxes next to buttons you want to remove from your toolbar.

    Click "Finished" to save your changes.

    Your Yahoo! Toolbar refreshes automatically to show your new buttons.

    If you want to change the order of your buttons, you can click "Change Order" instead of "Finished", or see "How do I change the order of my buttons?"

    I didn't see Norton listed there, but personally, I'm glad to have it available to me.
