Change live update source

I have a computer that was formerly part of  a Norton 8x server group.  

I now want to (well, already have) uninstall NAVCe 8x and install NAVCe 10x.

After doing so, live update is still looking for the parent server.  I tried doing a search in the registry for the server name, but didn't find anything relative to live update.

I realize I could have avoided this by changing the update source on the server prior to taking it down, but you know what they say about hindsight.

I imagine this info is somewhere in either the registry, or in a folder in the user profile the machine is logged in under but can't seem to find it.

Any ideas?
