I uninstalled Norton System Works 2002. I wanted to install a new virus program instead of NAV that was included in NSW 2002. I used the Uninstall routine that came with NSW. After I uninstalled I installed my new virus program. There is no problem with the new virus program but there were some files left over from NSW. I now get annoying pop up dialog boxes indicating that some files cannot be found. These are all file names left over from NSW. I went to Symentec's website to see if there was a KB paper that would clear up this problem, but found nothing.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get rid of these annoyances? Some of the file names are SEVINST.EXE, and CSINJECT.EXE.

Thanks, jerrydee

This article from Symantic may be of some help.

acklan,

Thanks for the reply. I actually did find that KB paper from Symantec but did nothing about it because it states that "This document is written specifically for Norton SystemWorks 2003". As long as it said "specifically" I thought it best not to try it. What do you think?
