McAfee Enterprise 7.1

Getting ready to deploy McAfee Enterprise 7.1 to my users and came across on e problem. Some, not many (less than 100), have a version of Symantec antivirus installed. Running the McAfee setup.exe will prompt the user to uninstall a number of other antivirus products, including Symantec. Does anyone know of a way to change the behaivior so that it does not prompt? I want it to automatically uninstall the other antivirus products with prompting. Can this be done?

I've no idea if this will work but...

What about creating an admin install of Norton then adding Norton to software install policy then telling GP that VirusScan is an upgrade to Norton and that GP should uninstall Norton then install VS.

Hopefully GP will detect the GUID of Norton, uninstall it then install VS.

Don't shoot me if it doesn't work though!

I'm not familiar with that specific version of McAfee but you should be able to get some kind of silent install going which would accomplish this.

Look at this web site, or google setup.iss and you'll see what I mean.
