    I installed NAV on my Tiger system a few years ago and then quickly uninstalled it after realizing that it was nearly pointless. As far as I can tell, everything has been removed except for this (see attached pic). It's not a big deal, but slightly annoying. Does anyone know how to remove this option when ctrl-clicking on the desktop?? Thanks.

    Are there any Norton related files in "/Library/Contextual Menu Items/"?
    Or maybe "/Users/yourusername/Library/Contextual Menu Items/".

    Yep, that did the trick. Thanks a lot. I also found a couple other items lingering around that I thought were completely uninstalled.

    Got to love Norton - when the "cure" is worse than the problem. :eek:
