Use the Norton removal tool as suggested by the other poster.
After you've done that, if Security Center still shows NIS, then do:
Right-click Command Prompt and Run as Administrator. Type the following
The first time you run this it will fail. It will issue stop commands to
the services causing it to fail. It might take a couple minutes for the
services to shut down. Run the command again and reboot your system.
If the above doesn't work, do the following from an elevated cmd prompt:
net stop winmgmt [enter]
cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem [enter]
ren repository repository.old [enter]
net start winmgmt [enter]
