Norton AV 10 - Unable to Scan

By arthur.acopians ·
I have been working on this machine for a few days and I am having a few problems. First problem is that I am unable to uninstall Norton Anti Virus, I tried it in safe mode and I also tried using the installation cd to remove it, and it wont do it. My second problem is this: after I was able to enable the auto-protect feature (with a week of efforts) I am now unable to do any type of a scan, it just freezes up the program and ends up not responding.

I tried to set up a start up scan and after that everything has been problematic. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, none of those are geared towards version 10. Thank you though.

Nope, this is what it tells me:

The following were found on this computer. These must be removed through "Add/Remove Programs" before Norton Removal Tool can proceed.

Symantec AntiVirus 9 or later.

The only symantec product I have installed is the AV 10 and it wont uninstall with add/remove programs.

Thank you for your help so far, at least its narrowing it down as we go.

Try reinstalling over the top and then see if you can uninstall it. If it works try the tool in this link.

If that fails

and you have registered the product get in touch with them.

I once went through 6 pages of registry entries to remove Norton from a file server that a Tech had left and taken the password with him. It wasn't much fun.
