How to uninstall Norton Security (Preinstalled Acer) quite / silent?
I need to uninstall Norton Security which is preinstalled on an Acer device.
The installtion File is not in the registry: HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
The installation File is in : HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
Uninstallation String is : C:\Program Files (x86)\NortonInstaller\....\instStub.exe" /X /ARP
Sooo... this installation doesn't support quite or silent installation...
The Norton uninstaller starts and then i need to accept (Advertising) some stuff and then it will uninstall.
What or how can i uninstall this damn software without user interaction...?
I've tried to unistall it with Powershell, CMD(msiexec) and 3rd part Software... no luck.
Thanks in advance for your help.
You may have to resort to something like AutoIT to script the accept of the ad.
I've said this so many times...Apps are just a bunch of files and registry data.
If the uninstaller doesn't cut the mustard, just build an uninstalling MSI or script. By that I mean, not one that calls the vendor's uninstalling EXE, but one that deletes the files and folders, along with the registry junk. Remember to account for DLL unregistration and - not so common today - shared DLL count, if that's taking place.
