The corporate edition is generally not available to consumers. Did you install it? If so, it lives in Add/Remove programs and can be uninstalled from there. If need be, there are additional removal tools at the Symantec Support site.

If you did not install it, you need to ask your administrator to uninstall it. Corporate installs usually need a password to uninstall.

Let me know if that helps. .... T
