That is such an old version and not supported any more. Unless you have resurected on old PC running Win 98 then the later version would be better or one of the many free ones that are available.
If you cant get rid of it via 'add & remove programs' try using CCleaner to do it.

I remember when I removed Norton a couple of years back I had 43 bits left which I had to delete by hand .I believe that now though there is a download available which does clear everything out .

CCleaner is a great tool but only uses the Windows uninstaller or the one that came with the program, it's no different to Add/Remove Programs in that respect. I always Norton Removal tool, then Agent Ransack to delete LiveUpdate or Symantec folders scattered across the disk. click here

When I got rid of the monster - about four years ago - I used the removal tool and still had to go through the registry removing all traces I could find.
