Want to uninstall SAV 10.x from former enterprise laptop
My former enterprise laptop has Symantec Antivirus 10.1.5.5000 installed. I want to uninstall it so I can proceed with its conversion to home use with the installation of my third Norton Internet Security 2012 license. Although I think I have Administrator privileges on the laptop, the main SAV page shows the LiveUpdate button grayed out with a lock symbol next to it.
I'm wondering whether I will run into issues trying to uninstall (or even be able to do it at all), If the company users were locked out of performing "positive" changes (LiveUpdate), I don't imagine they'd be allowed to perform "negative" ones (uninstall). Any advice/assistance would be appreciated, as I do not have recovery disks and don't know want to mess this system up.
Note: It is an IBM Thinkpad T60 with XP Pro 2002 SP2, and it appears to have something called Rescue and Recovery, but I don't know what that is.
