Probably you have ignored a warning message when you uninstalled the first
component of the Norton suite.
(I assume, you did it anyway out of "software" under "system control").
If you did not work in accordance with the recommended sequence, then you
will not be able to uninstall th remaining components.
Try the following:
Install Norton once more completely on he standalone PC.
Thereafter you should find three (or similar) components of Norton resp.
Symyntec in the list if installed software.
Then you start uninstalling with components like Live update, but read
exactly what upcoming messages tell you.
The last thing to uninstall is Norton security suite resp. client.
After you will have been succesful with uninstalling (do make the reboots
when you are asked for them), load the tool "Norton removal tool" from the
internet (find it with Google) and let this run.
Please let us know the results!
