    I got this pc from my brother it has xp pro and norton
    corporate edition. my daughter got into something and now
    my pc shuts down after a few minutes after being connected
    the norton will not allow updates and is pretty much trash
    so I bought norton 2004 but it won't install till norton
    corp. ed. is uninstalled I deleted and uninstalled
    everything about it but it is still on my taskbar and I
    still can't download 2004. how do I uninstall the stupid thing?

  2. There may be a removal tool available, have you checked their site?

    Most problems with Nortons can be found by searching the knowledge base

    Corporate Edition is meant for use in large businesses. It has a central
    server to dole out virus/software updates to all the client computers.

    I'm lucky, my company's license allows me to use Symantec AV Corp Ed at
    home too. In this case my home SAV CE contacts Symantec directly for
    updates. This is suppose to reduce that chances of bringing in infected
    laptops/software from home to work.

  6. Greetings --

    In the late 90's (iirc) Symantec purchased Intel's LANDesk Virus
    Protect client/server antivirus solution and renamed it "Norton
    Antivirus Corporate Edition." In the years since then, they've
    somewhat "merged" the Intel antivirus engine with the Norton version
    and renamed it as Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition.
