Need Uninstall Software/Option for Norton Safety Minder
I have been working in the IT business for 22 years, and I'm surprised that Norton Safety Minder doesn't have an uninstall software/option, since the program can't always tell when it has been already been installed on a computer. I had to revert my Windows to restore point before I installed Norton Safety Minder. Unfortunately, I now have the software installed on my hard drive, but Norton Safety Minder can't tell. I also can't run the uninstall option from Control Panel, since Windows can't see the software, and when I try to reinstall Norton Safety Minder (i.e. install over the top of the old version), the Norton Safety Minder creates an error log stating that the framework can't load.
Is there any fix in the works? I really just need to be able to uninstall Norton Safety Minder, and this seems to be a frequent request on this message board. According to the Symantec Knowledge Base, the Norton Removal Tool will not remove Norton Safety Minder (i.e. only other Norton Producst, such as 360, Internet Security, etc.). There has to be a better option than just wiping Windows and restarting.
