Bleeping Computers makes great easy to understand guides...
Has anyone figured out how to uninstall/remove Symantec AV?
Can't seem to find an uninstall and the program isn't listed in add/remove.
Searched BC site for "uninstall Synmantec" to no avail.

thanks.

There is no reference to Norton either?

This should do the trick.

The easy we do immediately. The difficult takes a few minutes. The impossible a little longer. :lmao:

If it is actually Symantec Antivirus, and not Norton Antivirus, you have a corporate version on your machine. The Symnrt will not remove it. You need the corporate removal tool.

Hi:

In my experience, removing NAV depends upon which versions of NAV and Windows you have. I found it murderously difficult to remove it from a Win 2000 system, but relatively easy to remove it from Win 7.

I hesitate to describe my experience removing it from Win 2000 since it involved, among other things, the use of - don't tell the mods! - a registry cleaner that deleted an amazing total of 2280 junk Norton/Symantec keys. But removing it from Win 7 only required the use of the Norton Removal Tool plus an additional bit of housekeeping.

But Norton is sneaky, and Symantec junk can lurk in the most unexpected places. I think Norton has gone, I hope it's gone, but there may be remnants I haven't found yet.

Good luck!

Just for the record, there are two pinned topics for uninstallers in this forum, one of them: List of Antivirus Uninstallers and Removal Tools :thumbup2:

Sorry ThunderZ. That link used to go to a website offering the cleanwipe tool. Symantec has removed it for some obscure reason.
