Step 3 - Restart the computer and uninstall Norton Utilities for DOS and Windows
After making the changes to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, restart the computer. The system should start normally to the Windows 95/98 or Windows NT desktop. Uninstall any old versions of Norton Utilities or Norton Desktop that remain on the computer. Uninstall these before installing any Symantec programs that were written specifically for Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT.
If the system displayed the "Windows Has Disabled Direct Disk Access" message, follow the instructions in this section for removing Norton Utilities for DOS/Windows. Use these instructions only if you received that specific error message. This error indicates that you made no changes to Norton Utilities. If you did make changes, these instructions may not fully remove Norton Utilities for DOS/Windows from the system. In that case, see the document How to uninstall Norton Utilities for DOS/Windows.
These are the main steps for uninstalling Norton Utilities versions 8.x and earlier. These steps assume the computer has been restarted to a command prompt, (see "Step 1 - Start the system to a command prompt" previously in this document).
