NIS 2004 removed - still shows as present firewall in windows security center

I removed Norton Internet Security Professional 2004 from my machine - I did the add / remove and used the automated removal tool from symantec. All appears gone, but in windows security center NIS still shows as an active firewall. If I turn on MS firewall, it says I have 2 firewalls. I have seached the reg and can't resolve the issue. Ideas

Did you used this utility to remove it?
Norton AV hooks run deep in a computer.  If you uninstall Norton AV 2004 or 2005, use this utility to remove the remains.

SymNRT Cleanup Utility (nonav)
Did you check to make sure Symantec did not leave any services behind?, but the SymNRT Cleanup tool take care of it if there is.

Go to START > RUN > type in

In the next window, look on the right hand side for services related to Symantec:

 Symantec Event Manager (ccEvtMgr)
 Symantec Network Proxy
 Symantec Password Validation (ccPwdSvc)
 Symantec Settings Manager (ccSetMgr)
 Norton AntiVirus Auto Protect Service (navapsvc)
 SAVScan - Symantec Corporation
 ScriptBlocking Service (SBService)
 Symantec Network Drivers Service (SNDSrvc)
 SymWMI Service (SymWSC)

If you find any, double click on each and STOP the service
In the drop down menu, change the startup type to "Disabled"

Is Norton's folder still in your C:\Program Files folder? delete it if it's still there and run the tool again.

Remove Norton and install a different antivirus program.
