Turn off Nortons Toolbar

Can anyone tell me how to turn off the Nortons Toolbar permanently? I remove it manually every time I start Outlook but every time I re-open MS Outlook the toolbar reappears. I don't use it and I don't want it there at this time.

Hi Rob4077,

You will have to disable it in Norton's options.

They make it difficult. I tried following the link and renaming the file suggested by Naser BUT it won't let me rename the file (I guess I need to restart in safe mode to delete the file).

frankco I tried looking through every possible option but can't see anything that indicates how to turn it off. Any ideas?

Incidentally I am running Nortons Internet Security 2006 and MS Outlook 2003.

Greetings, Rob4077 !

The easier way is to disable the Norton toolbar in Comm Add-Ins of Outlook 2003. Go to Tools > Options > Other >Advanced Options > COM Add-Ins.

Best wishes!

hi Rob4,

Try this:

1. Close your email client.
2. Open Norton AntiSpam.
3. In the main program window, click Options, and then click Norton AntiSpam.
4. In the Norton AntiSpam Options window, under Email, click Client Integration.
5. Under "Select the email client(s) with which you want Norton AntiSpam to integrate,"  uncheck the box next to your email client.
6. Click OK.
7. Restart your computer.

Thanks Frankco and war1. Found both options. Not sure what the difference is but as long as they work who cares. Thanks again

hi Rob4,

Im glad they both worked! Thank you for the points and grade.

war1's answer lets Outlook handle it. It a great way to remove Outlook addins that make some kind of change to Outlook's function or appearance. Quick, simple and effective!

My answer lets Norton handle it, (got this from a Symantec tech). It's not as simple but, it works.
