If you are faced with Symantec / Norton Antivirus (SAV) Enterprise asking you for an uninstall password you can try the default password “symantec“ or edit the Windows registry so that a password is no longer needed, as follows:
- Click Start and then click Run. Type regedit and then click OK.
- In Regedit navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\INTEL\LANDesk\VirusPro tect6\CurrentVersion\ Administrator Only\Security\
- Change the value for the useVPuninstallpassword key from 1 to 0.
- Close Regedit.
You can now uninstall SAV without needing to enter a password.
This should work on most versions of Symantec or Norton AntiVirus clients from version 7 through 10.
