Norton Antivirus and Internet Security, uninstalling

Hi,

I recently bought a Packard Bell laptop that came with Norton Internet Security and AntiVirus preinstalled but no media. I get Sophos Antivirus free through work and prefer ZoneAlarm for security so would really like to uninstall Norton. I've tried going through Control Panel!Add/Remove Programs and looking for an uninsrall icon but there doesn't seem to be one. I've disabled them both but each time I reboot I get prompted to to re-enable them.

Anyone know how I can remove them? (I'm used to UNIX where everything is open and honest; no hidden stuff, it's all in text files where you can see it)

TIA
