September 1, 2011 |

A must in any IT arsenal is the ability to completely remove whatever software is installed on their systems. As anyone in IT can tell you, at times you just need to start over. Removing Symantec Endpoint Protection may be one of those scenarios. Rumor has it that Symantec has a removal tool to make deleting the program easier than getting a BSOD in Windows ME.
