You can go into Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Norton from there or you can use the Norton uninstall tool to remove it.

Once you have successfully uninstalled Norton reboot your machine and start the install of McAfee

Can i suggest you remove the product key in your post so that no one else uses it.

If you need further help please post back.

Why would you replace one crappy security program with another? Just uninstall Norton & replace it with one of these freebies:

AVAST >> http://www.avast.com/index
AVG >> http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage
BitDefender >> http://www.bitdefender.com/solution...
Microsoft Security Essentials >> http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...

Subjectively McAfee now appears to result in more reported issues on these boards than Norton's current offering. I too use freebies.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I agree with riider in that neither Norton or McAfee should be used. Both are Bloatware and will slow down your system while offering less protection than say Avast and MS Security Essentials (I have some experience with both) which are free or have a free option. I would also highly recommend Webroot Secure Anywhere which you would have to pay for (though they do offer a great multiple machine discount (3 or 5 machines).

and/or get on newegg.com's email list and look out for the occasional special deals on this as a download.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
