Ok I work for a company and the Computer tech for us quit so now i have the responsibility of maintaining the computers. He had put norton on all the computers, personally i hate norton, and i want to uninstall all of em. Now the problem im running into is that he passworded all the computers. He forgot the passwords, now is there anyway around it that i can uninstall them without using a password, or is there a way to get the password if it was forgotten? Like through the registry or such?

Thanks for any help in advanced

I've done this before. Go to the program files folder, then norton and start to delete the Norton files, as many as you can. Some might not let you delete them, just rename them, then try to delete, then if that dont work, delete them, reboot and then try to delete them. Make sure norton is not running when you do this. Disable norton is msconfig, reboot and then try this. It worked for me
