I was given an ex-company laptop which has Symantec Anti-virus Client loaded. Due to the Win XP Corp.Edn Administrator restrictions it ass me for a password to remove the Anti-virus (among other things). is there any way to remove the password/work around/remove anti-virus so I can have unrestricted access to the pc (as it is mine after all!). The restrictions may also be to do with Group Policy within the XP Corporate Edition.
My friend was given an old company laptop with a corp vers windows on it but it also had a COA sticker on it with XP Pro OEM that it came preloaded with so I just formatted it and reinstalled XP from my pro oem disc and activated it on the phone and he now has a clean install without any of the group policy rubbish.
thats ok if you have an XP Pro disc to load; the pc didnt even come with a Corp.Ed. disc for emergency reloading. Ill have to think of something else. N.B. the password being asked for is a 'Symantec uninstall password'. Thanks anyway.
