I have a laptop that was installed (prior to me receiving it) with windows xp professional and norton internet security 2004.
The NIS is setup to use parental controls, ie when a user is logged on there, he is logged on as a restricted user (as far as norton internet security is concerned, whether or not Windows xp thinks he's a computer administrator or not).
this is unacceptable since I want to use ssh out of the laptop but I can't do it since i can't get NIS to allow me to.
How the heck do i uninstall NIS please since there is no administrator user in "normal" windows xp control panel -> users and when I login to safe mode,
administrator, the thing says "sorry i'm in safe mode, you can't uninstall me now, do it in normal mode"
any ideas please?
thanks very much for any input
