Running Windows XP , every time we boot machine we recived a box that pops up and says
16 Bit MS-Dos Subsystem
In the box it says
C:\Windows\system32\CMD.exe
C:\Progra~1\\symantec\S32EVNT1.DLL An installable virtual device driver failed dll initilization. Choose close to terminate the application.

We have uninstalled symantec and are running sophos anti virus.  I had deleted everything that was symantec on her machine, checked msconfig for startup items couldnt find anything in there (maybe i missed it ? )

Any ideas as to where to go from here I would appreciate it.

To thoroughly clean out all the remnants of the Norton/Symantec products, we have to use NONAV.EXE on several hundred computers.

Check this out and download the most current version of nonav (either .exe or .zip).
