uninstalling norton anti virus

By sbhuck ·
I installed Norton Professional Anti Virus 2003, but know I need to uninstall it. There is no option to uninstall it in the program. I should be able to goto start, programs, Norton antivirus system and find unstall as a option. It is not there.
Thanks
Wilbur Huck

To uninstall NAV using the Rnav2003.exe removal utility:
If you cannot uninstall NAV from the program list, then uninstall the program by running the Rnav2003.exe removal utility. To download the Rnav2003.exe removal utility, see the document How to uninstall Norton AntiVirus using the Rnav2003.exe removal utility.

NOTES:
The Rnav2003.exe utility must not be used to uninstall Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition (NAVCE).
The Rnav2003.exe utility should be used only if you cannot uninstall NAV from the Program list menu. Uninstalling NAV 2003 through Windows does a more thorough job of removing the program.
The Rnav2003.exe utility does not remove NAV if it is installed as a part of Norton SystemWorks (NSW) or Norton Internet Security(NIS). Follow the steps listed for the applicable program:
NSW:
1. Uninstall NSW from the Program list menu.
2. If you cannot uninstall NSW in that way, then follow the steps in the document that applies to your version of Windows to remove NSW manually:
How to uninstall Norton SystemWorks 2002 or 2003 manually from Windows XP
How to uninstall Norton SystemWorks 2002 or 2003 manually from Windows 2000/NT
How to uninstall Norton SystemWorks 2002 or 2003 manually from Windows 98/Me
3. Download and run the Rnav2003.exe removal utility to ensure that NAV is completely removed.
NIS:
1. Uninstall NIS from the Program list menu. Choose Remove all.
2. If the uninstallation fails, then follow the instructions in the section To uninstallNAV using the Rnav2003.exe removal utility to uninstall NAV using the Rnav2003.exe removal utility.
3. Then follow the steps in the document How to uninstall Norton Internet Security or Personal Firewall using the Rnis.exe removal utility to run the Rnis.exe removal utility to remove the rest of NIS.
