Unable to uninstall Autocad Architecture 2010

I've been using Autocad 2010 for the last year. I recently changed secuirty software and now when I attempt to launch Autocad I get a flash of a start screen and the program refuses to launch. No warning/error messages, just no launch.

 

After attempting to uplift firewall restrictions with no success, I decided the best bet would be to uninstall and perform a reinstall of Autocad. However, when I go to the Control Panel to remove the Autodesk software, there is no program showing Autocad.

 

However, when I insert the install disc, it says the Autocad Architecture 2010 is already installed!

 

How can I successfully remove any/all components of Autocadto then successfully reinstall the software? Please help!

Search the ADSK site for the Clean Uninstall/Reinstall procedure.

 

Edit: And then make sure to add ACAD as an exception for your virus protection software.  It isn't Norton, is it?

In another thread, the OP has identified Norton 360 v5 as the culprit for ACA not starting.

Seems that Norton is more trouble than it's worth.
