Hi Jonathon,

This is a common problem with Norton Internet Security 2012 so you have several choices if the normal uninstallation from the control panel add/remove programs doesn't work :

-The first choice would be to remove it manually which is a choice that I don't prefer since it involves a lot of manual file deletion plus deleting some registry keys which may cause a problem if not done correctly.

-The second choice which I recommend for you is to use a helping program to get Norton Internet Security uninstalled for you .

I recommend you two programs:

1) PerfectUninstaller: which you can get from  http://www.perfectuninstaller.net/PerfectUninstaller_Setup.exe

2) MaxUninstaller: which you can get from http://maxuninstaller.com/MaxUninstaller_Setup.exe

The use of both tools is so simple where you just choose the program from the list of programs on your computer then press Remove.

Hope this helps.
