I know this has been quite the topic in the past, but I need the easiest way to uninstall symantec endpoint protection from approximately 60 computers. I've read about cleanwipe, NONAV, and other programs. Please help me with this, it's begun to be a big frustration

Here is a link to an old question where we figured out how to use PSEXEC to do the job.

Second one with the similiar process.

I had to do several 'remote' Symantec uninstalls on some huge geographic WAN's and PSEXEC saved me weeks of travel.

Below is one more application remover for Symantec, this from Sun Belt Software who have created Viper and GFI.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
