Uninstall Norton products with Norton Removal Tool

Have you encountered problems with uninstalling Norton or Symantec products. Actually the uninstallation seems to go well when you do it in Add or Remove Programs from Control Panel but when you restart the computer, it shows error and unable to boot in to Windows. Somehow uninstalling Norton or Symantec products can occasionally corrupt Windows!

I found a tool to remove Norton products developed by Norton themselves. Think about this, why would Norton create a Removal Tool when it can be removed from Add or Remove Programs? There must be something wrong with uninstalling Norton products from Add or Remove Programs.

Norton Removal Tool can remove:

1. Norton AntiSpam 2004 and 2005
2. Norton AntiVirus 2003 through 2007.1
3. Norton Ghost 2009, 9.0 and 10.0
4. Norton GoBack 3.1 through 4.2
5. Norton Internet Security 2003 through 2007.1
6. Norton Password Manager
7. Norton Personal Firewall 2003 through 2006
8. Norton SystemWorks 2003 through 2007
9. Norton Confidential Online 2007
10. Norton Internet Security Add-on Pack
11. Norton 360

First Security Updates for Firefox 2.0

Yesterday Mozilla released the first update for the Firefox 2.0 browser, it fixes eight security vulnerabilities.

According to the company, release of Firefox fixes flaws in memory corruption as well as the way the browser executes RSS (really simple syndication), Javascript and CSS (cascading style sheets) code, among other vulnerabilities. Mozilla also patched similar flaws in its Firefox 1.5 browser.

Five of the eight flaws were rated as critical, according to Firefox. A critical rating means a Firefox user would be vulnerable to attack and remote software installation on their machines just from browsing the Web in the usual fashion. Two of the flaws were rated as high, while one received a low security-risk rating, Firefox said.
