I recently uninstalled a Norton Utilities prog but I still get 2 fragments of the prog appear on Startup. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of them permanently. Regards, Meshuga.

What fragments? did you close norton down befor uninstalling.

To Brynit.Yes I did close noton down. The fragments are boxes that appear on startup of the prog and show the status of the pc. every time I boot up now I have to click on theX to get rid of them. The icon is no longer on the desktop and the prog no longer appears pn instal/uninstall.

Go to start/run type in "msconfig" look in start up to see if you can see the program in there if so untick the box. Or start/run. type in "regedit" look in all the files see if you can see anything to do with the program you deleted then remove it from the register.WITH CARE be careful what you delete.If you have xp make a system restor point before you start.
