How can I prevent Norton Security from starting?

How can I prevent Norton Security from starting when I boot up my PC? I am trying to do a system restore to a specific restore point but it is giving me an error saying I need to turn off my anti-virus. I have disabled auto-protect but get the same message. I want to prevent all of Norton Security from starting until I get this restore done.

You can't stop Norton from starting.  You may have to temporarily uninstall Norton.

When restoring from a Windows restorepoint, you have to turn off Tamper Protection off in Settings- Management.

It then always works for me...

Other than uninstall there is no way to turn Norton off, but there is no need to uninstall Norton then.

Ah, that's what I was trying to think of.

Try system restore from safe mode, some people have had success doing it that way.
