I had this happen and it wasn't a password I had put in. I called Symantec and they gave it to me. I think it was either symantec or password

It was something really generic. Sorry that I can't be more specific. It didn't take me long to get through to Symantec though. Good luck!

There is a registry edit to disable the SAV agent uninstall password for cases like this. You could also turn off that setting for the affected group in the SAV console. A complete recipe is available at
