10/10/2007 – Fuck Norton, in his gay little ass. 2


I would just like to say a big FUCK YOU to Microsoft (for Vista) and Symantic (for Norton).

I have now spent TWO FUCKING days trying to remove Symantic Anti-Virus 10.2 from a laptop here at work. And no, it’s not because I’m slow. It’s because the dickless FUCKs at Symantic didn’t put in an uninstall program with their product so I have to do EVERY-FUCKING-THING manually.

This means I have to stop process, stop services, DELETE REGISTRY KEYS and more. Oh, and not jus ta kew registry keys, I have to search the WHOLE FUCKING HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and the HKEY_USERS. If you know about computers you know the registry is a no fly zone unless you know what you are doing.

Here is how official Symantic removal page reads for part of it:

Expand the following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTInstallerProducts

This key contains many keys.

 

Click each key, and look in the right pane for references to Symantec AntiVirus.
If you see any references to Symantec AntiVirus in the right pane, then delete the entire key.

Notice it doesn’t tell you which values to delete, just a sort of “Hey, search all these and if you happen to see something that matches this, delete it.

FUCK YOU SYMANTIC

I should get paid overtime for this shit.
