Antivirus wants to load each time I load open a program

by RHammerman / May 21, 2006 10:46 AM PDT

I have Symantec's antivirus 2005 on my computer, it came with it. However, when I try to run a program, its always trying to install itself and tells me that I either need to install it or remove it. Ideally I would like to remove it but cannot find the program in the ad/remove in the control panel and its not on the start bar...anyone know where its lurking and how to get rid of it? Thanks in advance!
