Default Disabling Symantec to install a printer


Have a friend who's trying to install a new printer, but can't find a way to disable her Symantec to allow her to do it.

I know someone here knows how - sharing your expertise is certainly appreciated!

Default Re: Disabling Symantec to install a printer

Right click my computer, select manage. Then select services and applications, then services. Scroll down till you find Symantec double click, stop the service. Remember to start it back when you are done.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
