How do I uninstall Symantec Endpoint from my computer

I have Symantec Endpoint loaded on my home computer because it was free for military users. I want to get it off my system to run something with less problem to it. I tried the Add/remove but it just froze. What do I need to do to uninstall it. I did a search on this site for a solution but it did not work because when I went to the msc file the items that it said to stop were not there. I need some help here.

Hi rbrown860,

You can try using the Norton Removal Tool. Here's the link: http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

You can also try using Revo Uninstaller: Here's the link: http://www.revouninstaller.com/

It seem that the instructions are for server on a network. My SEP is on a single computer not on a network will this still work?

Ok here is the latest one it works with both versions of vista.
 
Save it in the c:\ then you will need to rename it from .txt to .exe
open command prompt and do
 
ren CleanWipe4020.txt CleanWipe.exe
 
once its renamed run it with an account that has admin priviledges and follow the prompts
 
Note read all the pompts before hitting yes because it might remove parts that are needed by other symantec products such as live update.
 
Good luck
