After uninstalled NAV 2000,when the windows starts I get this error message:
Cannot find device file that may be needed to run Windows or a Windows
application. The Windows registry or system.ini file refers to this device
file, but the device file no longer exists. If you deleted this file on
purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or
setup program. If you still want to use the application associated with this
device file, try reinstalling the application to replace the missing file.

Perhaps SYMEVNT.386 is what you mean?

You should check with Symantec for a solution but try this:
(probably in safe mode)

Use Regedit.exe and remove any reference to Symevnt.386
Start-Run-Regedit.
Navigate down to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD
Expand VXD, find Symevnt and delete if there.
Restart the computer when finished.

Brian and Alan, I wonder if this will teach people to give up on Symantec.
