Norton Ransomware

Posted by aonomus on May 2, 2008

Yea, as a reminder, get rid of norton, when it turns off it apparently prevents full internet access. I’m totally moving to something else that doesn’t pull this bullshit with busted removal tools, disabled uninstalls and other nice dirty tactics to try to get people to capitulate. I encourage anyone out there to look carefully for firewall or AV software that is free and effective such as Comodo + Avast!

Interestingly enough it even asks you to reinstall after uninstalling (ie: running the Norton Removal Tool). You can’t uninstall the normal way, you have to run a special tool from their website to remove the crippleware. This thing is like a facehugger.
