    I just used the removal tool to rid my wife's Thinkpad of the pre-loaded Norton Internet Security suite, and it worked effectively. However, I think the tool is intended just for use on the Wintel PCs.


    As I recall, Norton has separate files for the program and the Live Update. Are you sure you trashed the Live Update program?
