10.6: Solve a prohibited-to-boot icon at startup

Wait, how did you uninstall Norton Anti-Virus if you couldn't boot up?

I could do a safe boot (go in to safe mode) and used it. Also I had used the norton unstaller that came with it before i installed SL. This script removed the files that the norton unintaller said was "files that were bad to remove for mac os x"

It happened to me after I uninstalled it because there are still some components there that search for the program during startup and when it can't find them, it won't start up.

I hope everyone reads the fine print again. There are components that remain (and are active) *after* uninstall. WTG, Norton.
