Error code after uninstall
My school system installed "Anti Virus Auto Protect" on my Macbook Pro. When my hard drive slowed down, I had it reformatted and reinstalled with a mirror edition of the old drive. Unfortunately, that affected "Anti Virus Auto Protect." Now when I start the computer eight or nine Norton error messages pop up in a cascade. Each says, "Symantec anti-virus auto protect could not continue. Please run LiveUpdate or reinstall Symantec Antivirus and restart (code 10)." Sometimes it says, "code 9."
Since I do not have possession of this software, I couldn't reinstall it. So I read through Norton's info and did an uninstall of "Symantec anti-virus auto protect." That went fine, but when I restarted the computer the messages didn't go away.
It's like I've got a virus from Norton! Of course, it's not malicious, but it is annoying.
Apple Care will help me clean up the problem if Norton will give me the "file pass." Or maybe someone could point me to an article that would help me clean this up.
Thanks in advance, Jeff.
