Try password as: symantec
NOTE: Uninstall Password would come up only when this policy is set. Check the Policy from SEPM> Clients > Policies > General-security settings.
Use the following to disable password and remove the product.
1. Open the registry
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC
3. Change the value for SmcGuiHasPassword from 1 to 0
4. Restart the SMC service
Then uninstall the product :)
you don't have any uninstall password change registry setting.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\AV\AdministratorOnly\Security\UseVPUninstallPassword
Set to 0 to disable
There are two ways i.e. either remove it from SEPM console or Change the registry settings on the machine itself.
There is no default password set when you first install SEPM first time.

If you don't have any uninstall password change registry setting.
You can use Symantec Cleanwipe Utility. To receive the Utility, you need to contact Technical Support.
