Symantec V2i Mount Driver service failed

I am in the process of changing a Windows SBS 2003 R2 server from Symantec Endpoint to Trend Micro. After un-installing Endpoint and rebooting I got the following in the event logs
"The Symantec V2i Mount Driver service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.  (2)"
I'm running Symantec Backup Exec version 12 rev.1364 on this server. BE opens fine and seems to be okay...all service running and from what I can find this error is usually relate to it not Endpoint.
Would the un-install affect this or am I treading on thin ice with this failure in terms of my backups???

I think that's the recovery point browser, actually i routinely remove it because it causes BSOD in many situs (for instance when i upgraded to vista x64 SP2, was a real PITA.)   The actual driver is v2imount.sys btw...nothing to worry about but if it really bugs you that this error shows up you can search for it in the services in the registry, backup the key and delete it.
