I am hoping that the Removal Tool will solve the problem. If the problem still remains, then goto:

Start->Run->%tmp%

This will open the temp folder where all installers and uninstallers will put their logs. Try to remove Symantec and see the freshly created log here for more information on the error. That will give us a clue.

I am assuming that you have administrative rights on this PC.
