First of all you should have done the uninstall in Safe Mode , when the Norton's autoprotection wasn't active. Now you have a completely mesed-up system. To fix that boot in SafeMode with networking and go to

Laptop infected with worm.


Nortons sucks. you should try an anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes, then you should install Avast as your resident protection. 

Be sure, when uninstalling Nortons, to use the uninstallation tool found on the nortons site. if you use the regular windows uninstaller, it will not remove all of it, and it will slow your computer down.
