Removing Norton Completely
I want to remove Norton AntiVirus completely. My TimeMachine backups randomly fail, and operations with the external drive generate errors -36 or -50; the only solution is to restart which fixes it for a while. I had the same problem with BitDefender, and uninstalling it solved the problem. Now I have it with Norton. The uninstall did not fix it, and I found the "RemoveSymanticMacFiles" terminal app and figured out how to run it with the -A option, where I saw it looked at the partitions on the external drive. Still no joy. Restarting many times a day is unacceptable. I am faced with wiping my drives and manually reinstalling everything - I can't do a full restore because I don't know what Norton has apparently left behind. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Mac OS HighSierra, 10.13.5
4 TB external drive, 2-2TB partitions, one used as TimeMachine backup (the TM partition has been erased and started over, no fix)
