How do I totally get rid of Norton Utilities

Alright, so I treated myself to a new computer for Christmas. Windows7 64-bit, yada yada yada. Uninstalled Norton Security using Windows7 uninstall program, installed Microsoft Security Essentials in it's place. From a cold boot, I still get the screen from Norton asking me if I wanna sign up for the free six months, which I don't. Guess Windows7 uninstall left behind some pieces. Anyone know how I can get rid of this Norton screen?

"there is Revo uninstaller

Revo uninstaller helps you to
uninstall software and remove unwanted
programs installed on your computer
even if you have problems uninstalling
and cannot uninstall them from
""Windows Add or Remove Programs""
control panel applet ...

Or

Norton removal tool

The Norton Removal Tool uninstalls all
Norton
2009/2008/2007/2006/2005/2004/2003
products, Norton 360 and Norton
SystemWorks 12.0 from your computer.

Or

use MSCONFIG tool to check for any startup process AND services related to Symatec and disable them, and take a look to Sheduled Tasks entries for any planned tasks."

"Have you considered

wiping the partition/disk
reinstalling Windows 7 fresh, without all the pre-installed apps?

That will 100% ensure you do not have any remnants from Symantec and the Norton product.

It may will have the side-benefit of ridding the machine of any other crapware that came preinstalled."
