I have been directed to run Combofix at the direction of my site network administrator, but when I try it says I have Norton Internet Security running. I uninstalled Norton some time ago and can find no trace of it on my machine. Also when I try to go ahead and run Combofix anyway, it says I cannot rename Combofix as Combofix[1]. Is there something else I can run to make sure Norton is really dead?

I am running Windows XP SP3
I have run all the standard antivirus/antispy ware stuff: MalwareBytes, Spybot, SuperAntispyware
but still can't get rid of Norton and run Combofix.
