Norton, and most other programs, are aware of the tricks people will try to renew their trial license. There are so many entries in the Registry, I doubt you could track it down and eliminate it.

Norton is crap anyway.

If you're on a budget, get Avast or some other free anti-virus.

Avast is much better than Norton and does have an option for gaming .
You will need the Norton un-installer , Google is your friend or we can point the way if you wish .

As a Registered Partner of Symantec we would like to get a bit more background information for claims such as "Norton is crap" or "Avast is much better than Norton".

While Avast is a fine antivirus solution, just know a lot of progress was made over the last two Norton Antivirus releases (2009 and 2010) to lower system resources consumption, among other things. That makes Norton Antivirus 2010 a perfectly viable choice for hardcore PC gamers.

The program is also a lot easier to set up and use, think of it as a "set-it-and-forget-it" type of antivirus solution.

In order to remove completely Norton (for all post-2003 products), please download the Norton Removal Tool from here:
Norton removal tool

You can download a free AVAST trial from here:
Free trial

And if you wish, you can try Norton Antivirus and Norton 360 for free at the URL specified below. Norton Antivirus does not have firewall protection like Norton Internet Security Does; Norton 360 adds backup & restore as well as PC performance optimization features to Norton Internet Security:

Norton 360 Trial, you are a spammer. Notice how he echoes the other responses...too funny!
Norton is still crap no matter how you look at it. Just a resource hog and pretty useless.

Norton is still crap.

If I can find the reviews on line I'll quote where they state that Norton has gotten better at resource allotment, but still drags system performance down.

Aside from that, there are lots of consumer complaints about Norton.

I don't use Norton anymore. Ever since Peter Norton sold out to Symantec the product has gone down hill.

And I don't use Avast or AVG either.

I'm not going to tell you here who I do use because it will just prolong your argument that Norton isn't crap.
