Micorosoft msi uninstaller should help. If there are few entries in registry, it should not matter.

You can refer the following articles to remove SEP. In manual uninstall articles you will find registry entries specific to each operating system. You can refer those entries to delete unnecessary registry entries.

Symantec does provide Cleanwipe tool to remove SEP however I don't see any need to run cleanwipe in your case.

Here an example for using the reg command in a logof script:

I believe you should be able to create a .cmd script and use within the REG commands to remove the invalid/old registry entries:

reg delete "HKCU\Some\Registry\Path" /f


reg delete "HKLM\Some\Registry\Path" /f
