norton antivirus corporate edition

HI,

Well i am in a small problem.
I have Symantec AV corporate edition 7.5 and windows 2000 server.
My network Administrator installed the AV on the server and he left and he knows the password only.
and he is not co-operating ...Is there a way i can reset the password for AV .I can login as Network or Domain Administrator.I know the windows password.
Is there any registry key or a crack to crack it.

Thanks

hawgpig...it does ask for password. ;)
To access the AntiVirus Server Group = ask for password...
To uninstall = ask for password...

Harry,
Try this...
The administration password to manage might have changed...but the uninstall might be still the default (=symantec).
Give it a shot. The only thing is that your client policy will have to reconfigure....good luck.

In Symantec Anti-Virus 8.0 there is program named IForgot.exe found in C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec System Center\Tools

Don't know whether there is similar one in NAV 7.5 corporate edition but worth a try.

I believe you can simply uninstall and reinstall...it'll take about 20 minutes.....I don't think the software hangs onto any passwords....just the experation date.....
Worth a try...

If you have not installed symantec system console, install it.

This is tool
C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec System Center\Tools\IForgot.exe will retrieve the encrypted password with which you can then call symantec to decrypt the password

You have all the answers listed above.

1: symantec   for the admin password
2: you cannot uninstall the software without a password
3: Install the system console and then contact Symantec with the encrypted password

You do not need any more information than this.

Good Luck

Mike.
