Received this old iMac from father and just downloaded Snow Leopard and would like to remove the Norton's that is embedded on this computer. When I say embedded, I mean it does not show up in the HD or utilities. And in utilities, security, it is all grayed out so that I cannot click on anything. And yes, it is unlocked as well as disabled. But still coming up with random error messages from Norton's. 
I am assuming some of the files were deleted before I received it and now cannot 'uninstall' the correct way.

Will I have to erase and reinstall the Snow Leopard? I do not have the disk and cannot create a boot disk from the original Leopard (missing image file)
 

Any help on this would be great...

Thanks!!!

Scroll down to Remove all Norton programs for Mac using the RemoveSymantecMacFiles removal utility, for instructions.
