Hi friend,

If you remove anything from your add/remove center that means you already removed it from your pc. add/remove center is designed for removing installation software from pc. So remove any application software from pc add/remove center is enough for it.

Though for sometime add/remove center cannot remove all folders or files of that software. You have to remove those file or folders manually. It will give you the location of those folders. You just need to go there and delete them manually.

Other option is you can use some pc cleaner software for removing unnecessary files of folders. To do this just use any pc cleaner as example CCleaner.

     As far as I understood your problem,  you want to remove Symantec Antivirus completely from your system. You could remove that from add/remove program, but you can not remove that from your PC. Correct me if I am wrong.


      You have to use Registry Cleaner in the end. First you need to restart your system after uninstalling from add/remove. Then look for any folder named 'Symantec' in program files of your local disk (C:) or any other folder related to your antivirus program, and delete them all. If you can not delete all even this way, restart your system and try again.

      Alternate method can be used to uninstall your antivirus. Search for 'Norton uninstaller' or 'Symantec uninstaller' on internet and try to use any of these.

      At the end, you have to clean your registry using any software you want. But make sure you create a system restore point before using such software to avoid any damage to your system.
