Even if you have used the Norton uninstall download, and then use the trialware Registry First Aid, or Registry Mechanic, you will find an unbelievable amount of codes still in your computer. These programs will guide you safely (even for a novice like me) through the process. Just make sure that what you delete has been identified by you as no longer required. BaCK UP shared items you are not sure of. It is all built into the RFA and RM programs. Otherwise, will it cause conflicts in the future? I don't know! Will you be holding obsolete junk in you registry? Yes! Will it matter? Probably in the long run, with accumulated debris.

Whichever method you choose as long as you back up your registry first, XP will revert to the saved version if you muck it up.

To get into regedit
start/run/type regedit/enter

To back it up from within regedit
select a location in Save In/
select a filename/
select Export Range All and press enter

You'll also need to delete the Norton permissions from ZoneAlarm if you have it installed.
