Two weeks ago, as my subscription with Symantec was expiring, I jumped ship and purchased NOD32 v3.0.566.0. I'm pretty much a newbie with computers (go easy on me!), but carefully followed the Norton removal tool instructions and had no problems. I also followed the additional instructions described here: http://pc1stop.com/PCHealth.html (Tip 2 - How To Get Norton Off Your System). NOD32 installed without any glitches. But I've read that Symantec/Norton leaves lots of remnants on one's computer, so after going through the above steps, I went into my registry, used Edit and Find, and searched on "Symantec" and "Norton". Sure enough, I found somewhere between 20 - 30 remaining entries. Three or four of them were folders with "Symantec" or "Norton" in the name. But most of them were entries that began with the letters ab and had the name "Symantec" or "Norton" in the string. Would appreciate the advice of the experts on this forum: Should I delete these additional Symantec/Norton entries or leave well-enough alone?
