I've been through the registry "finding" Symantec...haven't gotten to Norton yet...can't wait for THAT one..
While going through the Symantec search; I had 2 questions and one problem.
Questions: A LOT of the keys I deleted had an entry in the same folder that said:
Name: Threading Model
Data: Apartment (a couple of them reported "Both" rather than apartment)
Is that something that should be there??
I saw a LOT of folders with SymNet, SymEvent, or variations of those that I "think" are Symantec files.
Are they and if so should they be deleted also?
Lastly...the problem...I have one folder that appears to be (at least deductive reasoning tells me it is) important to delete. The folder name is "Legacy_Symantec_Core_LC" and it has a subfolder "0000" which contains 6 registry keys that "appear" to need to go...i.e. "DeviceDesc"...etc.
What should I do about those?
( I think I deleted some registry keys that were not supposed to be deleted; they showed up highlighted before I hit the F3 or "find next". I don't know why they were highlighted and I deleted several before I realized what I was doing and I have no clue where/ what they were. Were they supposed to be deleted if highlighted or did I really screw up?)
I haven't started on Norton deletion yet; I wanted to wait and see what you had to say about what I have done so far. Not to mention that it takes forever and it is a boring task; although having said that...if you help me get this taken care of; I will be forever grateful!
Thanks so very much for all your help!
