Password to remove Symantec AntiVirus

I’m just in the process of installing Microsoft Windows Live OneCare on my Mum’s laptop but first of all I needed to remove Symantec AntiVirus 8 Corporate Edition. I had some trouble though as it needed a password for removal and the password I use for managing the anti-virus infrastructure here wasn’t working. I even reinstalled the software to reattach the client to my Symantec AntiVirus Server installation but it still didn’t work.

Luckily, I’m not the first to have experienced this issue. Thanks to BarryVG for posting the password on TechRepublic and for anyone else who needs it, try symantec – it worked for me!
