Removing Symantec from your Mac
Not sure if this posted in other forums yet. I had installed Norton 10 for MacOS and was confounded in trying to remove it (yes, I'm a new Mac user). I found this on Symantec's Site [http://service1.symantec.com/support...11?Open&src=w]
Removing all Symantec programs for Macintosh by using the RemoveSymantecMacFiles removal utility
You need to uninstall a Symantec product for Macintosh that is installed under Mac OS X. You tried several methods, including manually uninstalling or running the Symantec Uninstaller without success. Alternatively, you have been referred here by a technician or from another document because running the RemoveSymantecMacFiles utility is necessary to solve a problem with your Symantec program for Macintosh.
For instructions on how to manually uninstall 2002-2005 Symantec Mac OS X products, see the document that is appropriate for your product:
Uninstalling Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh 10.0.x
How to manually uninstall Norton Utilities for Macintosh 7.0
How to manually uninstall Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh 8.0
How to manually uninstall Norton Personal Firewall for Macintosh 2.0
How to manually uninstall Norton SystemWorks for Macintosh 2.x
How to manually uninstall Norton Internet Security for Macintosh 2.0
To uninstall Symantec 2004/2003 products for Mac OS X, read How to uninstall a 2003-2004 Symantec Macintosh product. Use the RemoveSymantecMacFiles utility to remove all versions of Symantec products for Mac OS X. This utility should be used only when there is a problem that requires the complete removal of all Symantec products for Mac OS X.

I find Symantec is not far behind either.
Intego seem the way to go. Their stuff just works and lets you get on with your work. Not that I have it installed at the moment but I used to until the subscription ran out.
