Norton Full System Scan won't scan everything.

But if you really want to satisfy yourself that ALL your files are clean you just need to look for an option in the on-demand scanner which says "check all files", or it may be a choice between "quick scan" and "thorough scan".
Mind you, if you are really concerned about being free of viruses (and you are quite right to be), you could do a lot better with something other than NAV. It was recently put to shame in a controlled test involving 9 competing products -- one of which was the free AVG Ant-virus. AVG beat NAV by a wide margin in detecting viruses which are currently in circulation, and unlike NAV it doesn't slow down your PC by nearly as much.
I'm not necessarily recommending you switch to AVG, just advising you that while Norton AV may be a very big name with a presence in almost every software shop, that doesn't make it the best.

If you use add and remove, is there an option to change the install of Norton, or is it remove only
