Cant get symantec off my computer

by wsabroff / September 17, 2011 1:35 AM PDT

I have Lenovo Thinkpad

Symantec Enpoint Protection will not get off.
I tried different methods.
-symantec web sites advice didnt help
-I can't figure out which Norton removal tool i need to download because I dont know which specific Norton product I have
-I don't seem to have a product key as I tried to find it on the Norton website
-My computer always tells me I have another installation in progress and I can't figure out how to stop it or delete what is causing the installation
