    Unable to delete Norton Antivirus Internet Security on Windows 8

    Hi, my firewall is being managed by Norton antivirus and I cannot delete it. I tried to delete it from programs and other places and it won't let me. I downloaded avg as my antivirus program and didn't know that Norton antivirus was downloaded in my laptop. I thought I uninstalled it months ago but after I did a factory reset for my files it popped in and isn't coming out. Can someone help me please?

    This Antivirus Programs , are Sticky in nature, and cant be uninstalled by the normal Windows Uninstaller.

    To uninstall Norton Completely, you must employ any of the following Methods.
    For Windows 8 Users,
    go to Start, click Uninstall Norton Internet Security.
    In the following menu, under Select Your Uninstall Preference, click the following:
    1. Please remove all user data.
    2. If Norton Internet Security offers to install the Norton Toolbar after uninstall, click No, thanks.
    3. To uninstall Norton Internet Security, click Next.
    4. Click Restart Now to restart the computer.
    You can Uninstall the Antivirus using Revo Uninstaller too,
    Download the Uninstaller from Internet and install it in Windows 8.
    Run the utility and remove Norton completely.

    Try those measures for successfully uninstalling Norton from Windows 8?
