Symantec Encryption Desktop (formerly PGP Desktop) has an option as part of the installation where you can click on "Customize" and check or uncheck the option for Symantec Encryption Desktop or Symantec Drive Encryption. The problem is that both options are grayed out and checked and you cannot uncheck them.
