Does taking the machine back to before digital editions remove it? If no then its one of those horrible pest type programs like Avast which I wish I'd never heard of.

I've said it before, but any bit of software that when uninstalled does not leave the machine in exactly the same condition as before is to be avoided in my view. Its odd that it seems that the problem is nearly always due to a security product.
I guess if it were easy to remove by third party software then it would be easy to disable it by some kind of malware.
Often uninstalling these tools in safe mode works a whole lot better as then the running services do not tend to reinstall their components on the reboot.

Subject: [nvda] getting rid of norton security tool


Hi,
I installed adobe digital editions to read epub books. It asked me if I wanted to also install norton security scan. I clicked disagree, no, no thanks, etcetera with jaws/NVDA mouse cursor. But it installed it anyway along with some norton product thing which seems to have gone away. It also installed a chrome extension that i removed. I tried using the norton removal tool with OCR but this stubborn norton security scan just will not go away! So how do I remove it? Should I just reset windows10 wipe out everything and reinstall and re-set everything back up on my RCA cambio tablet laptop? I tried uninstalling from both control panel and the windows 10 settings app but no luck. this stubborn norton security scan still seems to stick around. Would malware bytes remove it perhaps? or is there an accessible revo uninstaller or force program remover tool that will uninstall it? the norton removal utility tool did not help at all.

thanks,

josh
