I've looked everywhere and can't find how to get rid of tamper protection after a manual uninstall of the AV itself. Everytime I right mouse-click on the server it tries to reinstall itself, and gives an invalid msi no matter where I try to point it. It's driving me crazy. It's my fault that I did a manual uninstall but there should be a backdoor somewhere to kill the process. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Where are you doing the right click? If it’s in the Add/Remove Software app, you can delete the program from the list by editing the following registry location:
HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall key.

I doubt you’re looking for something this simple, however. I haven’t used 10.0.1, but if this happened with previous versions, you could simply install the server on another computer and name the AV group the same name. You then could control the group and set the uninstallation passwords, network scan passowrds, etc. It might work for 10.0.1 as well. Unfortunately, I haven’t played with it since someone else handles that function now.

    Have you done the standard norton removal rules i.e. run msciuu2 (microsoft installer clean up utility).. removed any folders named "symantec" i.e. c:program filescommon filessymantec c:documents and settingsall users...applicationssymantec etc.. deleted your temp and tmp file areas.. you may have to boot into safe mode to remove all the .dll's also you may want to use a registry editor to remove all 'symantec' references

    The msciuu2 did the trick. My problem was that I searched high and low to find the solution, and just ran across it while searching for something else. Thanks for your responses.
