Before you install Symantec AntiVirus

It is important to make sure you've uninstalled other antivirus software such as free trials or older versions of Norton, McAfee, PCCillin, etc. BEFORE installing Symantec AntiVirus from the university. In Applications, go to your existing antivirus software folder and use the Uninstaller to remove the software. If there is no Uninstaller, delete your antivirus software and its related folders.

To remove previous versions of Symantec, download and run the Symantec Uninstaller
