Windows error message about NortonM2.exe or Norton M3.exe

I have a new computer from which I uninstalled the Norton trial product. I randomly get the error message that "Windows cannot find NortonM2.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." I removed and reinstalled Norton several times to solve the problem. I have gone through a whole litany of manuevers with Norton, and there seems to be nothing from Norton or Symantec anywhere in the computer. I did a reinstall of Windows. I consulted with Norton and went through different maneuvers. There is no trace of anything of Norton or Symantec left to be found, including hidden files. I am assuming somewhere there is a Windows setting that is still looking for this program. Help if you can.
