I've removed symantec from my PC which is running Windows XP Professional.a while ago  Since then I have been getting the the following message box upon bootup

C:\PROGRA~1\Symantec\S32EVNT.DLL. An installable Virtual Device Driver failed Dll initialization.  Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.  The title of the message box is 16 Bit Windows Subsystem.  If I choose Close, the system reboots.  How do I get rid of this error message.  I thought I had completely removed the Symantec application
