Uninstall/Remove Secure VPN from new Norton 360 Deluxe

Hi All,

In order to try and resolve another issue I was having with my Norton Security Premium installation I elected to take up the 'Free' upgrade offer to Norton 360 Deluxe which includes a cut down version of Norton Secure VPN. (Cut down in the sense that it does not include any configuration options and any ability to auto connect)

This product (Norton Secure VPN) was installed along with Norton 360 Deluxe.  The VPN starts automatically with Windows with a Service and and Executable program running in the background.  It does not auto connect.

Can I ask if anyone knows if it is possible to remove or uninstall just the Secure VPN component of Norton 360 Deluxe?

There is no separate uninstall entry in the Windows 'Programs and Features' list, and if you run the Norton 360 uninstaller it asks if you want to remove your Norton protection, presumably it is about to uninstall the entire product.

Cheers.

Hello JustRight. Unfortunately there isn't a way to just remove the VPN from the Norton product suite as it is integral. As you stated you CAN disable the services associated with it in the services area of Windows. The Norton removal tool and Windows itself will indeed remove the entire Norton installation. If it were the stand alone version that is possible from the Control Panel, under Programs and Features.

Cheers

Thanks mate, that's pretty much what I suspected.

I'll take steps to just prevent it from running.

Cheers.
