Hello,  I uninstalled all of my Norton programs from the control panel but when I open an attachment from my Yahoo mail, Norton pops up and checks the attachment ?  I see that it still has an antiSPY icon in a pulldown from the tool bar.  How do I remove Norton from the tool bar ?  I am using AVG and am happy with it.

You may want to go to the symantec site and download The Norton Removal Tool.
