Hello,

I am about to migrate from Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition 10.0 to McAfee Active Virus Defense.  I am wondering if there is a tool available to automatically uninstall the Symantec Anti-Virus client from all my desktops.  I have heard about NoNav, but I think it only works up to version 9.x.  At least I haven't had any success with it.  Does anyone have any ideas or tips as to what might be available?

Thanks for any advice in advance!

I use scswipe to remove sav 10.  I have seen people on this board mention there is a nonav10, but I've never asked support about it.

Either way, I would only accept that from a trusted source.

The utility is called SCSCleanWipe.bat. It does not work on Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition 10.0.

OOPs!
Apparently, SCSCleanWipe.bat WILL remove Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition 10.0.
My apologies, boywaja!

SCSCleanwipe seems to do the trick pretty well.

Thanks.
