How do I uninstall Norton System Works?

I went to control panel and uninstalled it, but it's still there. There are two Norton programs showing up in the add or remove programs area but it won't let me. I get the below errors. Now that I have uninstalled most of the program I get the icon in the task tray with a red x through it.

Here are the errors I get.

The last time I tried to fully get rid of anything Norton, I reformatted my HD and reinstalled Windows. Saves time and headache.

the symantec website has pretty detailed directions, IIRC. it is a pain in the a**. any time you expect a customer to muck around in the registry to remove your program, you are asking for trouble.

Try this page:

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...&osv=&osv_lvl=

If the link is messed up, go to Symantec's site and search for SymNRT. It works on any 2004/2005 product. The page links to another tool if you have an earlier version.
