One of our customers who previously used Norton AntiVirus, recently upgraded some of their computers to Windows 10. After their Windows 10 upgrade was complete, we started receiving the following error on some of the computers that had had Norton installed.
This customer didn’t want Norton, they were already using a different antivirus. These are the steps I took to remove this pesky prompt from reminding us to install Norton.
Open Task Scheduler. Along the left-hand side, you should see some folders. Click on the folder called Norton 360. You should see two scheduled tasks underneath this folder. Delete both of the tasks – mine were Norton Autofix and Norton Error Analyzer. Once you have both of those tasks deleted, delete the Norton 360 folder.
Next go down to the Remediation folder. You will find a task named similar to AntimalwareMigrationTask shown in this screenshot. Delete that task also and then the Remediation folder. This should take care of this issue for you. However, if you continue to have troubles with Norton popping up you can keep on reading. . . .
I also checked Task Manager > Startup tab and found the FSDUI_N360.exe in the startup folder. I disabled that from startup and also right-clicked on the FSDUI_N360.exe to find the folder location of the executable. I deleted the whole Norton folder.
On one of the computers, I searched through the registry to remove all traces of Norton and Symantec but this isn’t necessary unless it continues to pop up.
