How to Uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection if you don't know uninstall password in Windows Vista and 7

Click on Start -> Run (or Window Key + R if you don’t have the Run menu item)

Type smc -stop. If it prompts for a password, open regedit (Window Key + R; type regedit; hit ENTER) and then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC. Look for the smcexit key, delete it, and then type smc -stop in the Run box again. Note: my key was called smcexit-test or something like that, but deleting it had the same effect.

You should now be able to use Add/Remove programs (or Programs & Features in Vista and  7) to remove without supplying the uninstall password.

How to Install Unicode Fonts - Windows XP

A Unicode font (also known as UCS font and Unicode typeface) is a computer font that contains a wide range of characters, letters, digits, glyphs, symbols, ideograms, logograms, etc., which are collectively mapped into the standard Universal Character Set, derived from many different languages and scripts from around the world. Unlike most conventional computer fonts, which are specific to a particular language or legacy character set and contain only a small subset of the UCS characters, these fonts attempt to include many thousands of possible glyphs, so that they can be used as a single typeface across multi-lingual documents.

Step-1: Go to Start Button -> Setting -> Control Panel.
