i have a managed computer with SEP installed.  I need to uninstall it normally.  Add/Remove programs, there is no uninstall option.  How do I routinely uninstall the software from this managed client?

assuming you have the symantec Cd's on the 2nd CD there is an uninstall util:
cd2:\tools\noSupport\SEPuninstaller\
I would reccomend reading the readme first. they have a special disclaimer in there.

Symantec has a utility called "cleanwipe" but it can only be obtained from them directly.

You can acquire this utility 1 of 2 ways.

Open a case via MySupport:

Call Symantec Technical Support directly to open a case and request the utility:
