Endpoint Protection on single computer

Created: 27 Nov 2012 • Updated: 28 Nov 2012 | 3 comments

I have a single pc on my domain and I need to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection.  I can't find it in ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS, I can't find it in Services.msc, I can't find it in Start Up services.  The only place I do find anything is in Program Files.  But no uninstaller.  XP Security Center shows it as the Anti-virus software running and reporting.  How can I uninstall the software.

remove the AV completely usning the cleanwipe, these would be remanants of earlier install.

if you are running another AV on the system then the Windows Security centre will show as AV is running.
