How do I get norton anti-virus off my computer and use Yahoo or microsoft instead?

I just want to keep Norton utilities but get all of the huge and costly group of things on Norton anti-virus. It virtually takes over my computer and I can’t get updates even from HP, my computer maker!

    Use Symantec’s tool from http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

    The uninstaller leaves stuff behind, but this should clear everything.

    Don’t keep anything of the Norton software: it can all be replaced and anything will continue to break your computer. Don’t use the Yahoo! stuff, that is Norton too, and Microsoft Live OneCare is terrible.

    You can do better for free; get these:
    Avira: http://www.free-av.com/
    Spyware Terminator (turn off web security guard): http://www.spywareterminator.com/
    Spybot: http://www.safer-networking.org/ (use immunise feature)
    Superantispyware: http://www.superantispyware.com/
    Comodo: http://comodofirewall.notlong.com/ (turn off defense+ to see fewer alerts)

    Then get these:
    http://www.kessels.com/JkDefrag/
    http://www.ccleaner.com/
    http://heidi.ie/eraser/
    http://www.iobit.com/
    to replace the utilities bit.
