in a machine of my friends, some idiot made a faulty installaion of nav and now it does not give any option for uninstalling.i cant uininstall it from the 'add-remove programs'. neither does it function, as there is no exe file. I've tried to remove it by deleting the entrry from the registry, from the boot path, and disabling it at startup. but it is still detected during bootup and a missing file screen is shown before 98 is loaded. I cant install a fresh copy as the existing installation does not allow it. i cant format as he has a lot of important files that he has not backed up, and cant as he has no writer. also formatting means he will have to reinstall the thousands of softwares he has installed over the years. heeeeeeeelp!!! ps: I have thought of backing up the existing regstry in a separate partition and reinstalling windows, and then reimporting it. But will that save the softwares? and even if it does, it will also have the entry for the norton already installed, and so it will probably cause problems again. GIVE ME IDEAS, ANY, ABOUT HOW I CAN REMOVE THE NAV AND INSTALL A FRESH COPY.
