Hi all,
When I try to uninstall Symantec Anti-virus, the process begins well and after about 69% through, I get this error message: Internal Error 2318. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition\7.5\APTemp\APO.inf_... What could this mean and why is it hanging in the middle of the uninstallation process. I've tried ending all symantec related processes before uninstallation and the same problem occurs. Help needed please!

Norton removal tool

Hello Extrodewise,

Did you use the Norton removal tool? http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgen...005033108162039

Thanks Guys, I'd check out the removal tool. Thanks a lot, at least there's a bit of hope for me.
