have you tried lowercase "symantec"  ?  That is the default.


If it doesn't work, there is a registry change you can try if applicable...


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\INTEL\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\Administrator Only\Security\

Change the value for useVPuninstallpassword key from 1 to 0.
Exit Registry Editor and now you can uninstall Symantec AntiVirus Client.


If that doesn't work, you can contact Symantec as they have a util that can help you.
