Hello,

Thanks for the tip on the link to info on uninstalling Norton SystemWorks
totally manually!

Worked perfectly. Thanks, Shenan Stanley, for the excellent tip!!

The manual method actually took just a few minutes - probably shorter than
their uninstal utility. I was so surprised.

Regards and thanks again.

You should have replied to your original newsgroup thread. This post is
useless now since the solution is not part of of it. Could you please post
the solution on how to remove NSW 2005 again?

The following is a cut-and-paste of the original response (OP on 05.09.05 at
21:13). It is for NAV 2003 but towards the lower end also includes a link
for instructions for NSW 2003 :-
