The Noerton Removal Tool does a good job of removing everything Norton . . but carefull . . it takes out all Symantec Products . . Including ACT and Ghost.

The Norton Removal Tool is for retail products.
The Asker clearly states - Symantec Corporate Antivirus 10.1 - so this tool is not supported.

Use nonav (at your own risk - given out usually by Symantec technical support) - or the manual removal can be scripted for use on multiple computers.
