Default Cannot uninstall Symantec Antivirus Client

Guys;

A friend of mine trying to remove the "Symantec Antivirus Client " from his machine is prompted to enter a password which he doesn't know.

This happens although logging on as the administrator.

How can this be done without the password.

If it's his machine and doesn't know the password, maybe there isn't one. did you try just hitting enter?
