Relentless Symantec Antivirus

Relentless Symantec Antivirus

Relentless Symantec Antivirus

Tried every removal instruction, trick, and tip to completely remove Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition Version 10...and I've had no success.  I still get the warning when installing other Antivirus software that "Symantec Antiviurs" is present.  Also, Belarc Advisor reports "Symanted" as being the Antivirus program.  I cann't find any trace of it in the registry or in any folders...but it still lurks there somewhere....slowing things down at times, I believe.  Any ideas?  Thanks!!

RE: Relentless Symantec Antivirus

Try downloading and using Glary Utilities (free), it should find the remnants in the Registry and fix them.
Did you uninstall using Windows or the Symantec uninstall?

Thanks Serv and Bad.  Glary still didn't get rid of it...and I tried running the removal tool for the xxxxth time.  It finds that the Antivirus software exists but tells me i must remove through "add/remove" programs.  Of course, it isn't on the "add/remove" list.  Like I said...relentless.

RE: Relentless Symantec Antivirus

Last option is searching the Registry for Symantec and deleting everything it finds.
As always, backup first.

Serv...can't do that either....using Ghost and pcAnywhere on same PC (Symantec).  :( relentless :( Thanks.

RE: Relentless Symantec Antivirus
