computer help!!

I have a subscription to Norton and it is blocking me from the internet. I cannot get online or send email. I cannot uninstall Norton because it said I was not authorized. Any ideas?

Sorry Marty guess you'll have to get your "resources" the old fashioned way.....go to the store and buy a porno magazine.

Your welcome

Post this in the computer section for starters! Boot in safe mode as administrator and take it out of the start up folder or try uninstalling from there. More than likely it won't let you uninstall it from safe mode. If it won't let you uninstall it in safe mode, the next time you start it up right click on the icon in the system tray and disable the program then uninstall it.

By the way do you happen to have more than one virus scanning program on your computer? Is this on a laptop with a wireless card?

It is my work computer. I'm on another one trying to get my junk up again. I posted this on the main forum so someone would see it. Thanks for the help. I'll give that a shot.

I know what you mean. I've been poking this thing with a stick for two days.

Well first of all, you're going to have to be a local administrator on that machine before you can uninstall anything.

Are you?

I don't know. It's not like we have a "local administrator". What we have going on here is an offfice full of computer idiots. Our computer guy was supposed to come out yesterday to fix this thing and still has not showed up. I don't care about not getting online with the computer, but I need to get my emails going again.
