I imagine you are on the right track and Norton is picking up on the older version. My advice would be to uninstall all versions, then re-install the CD-Rom based latest version, it's unlikely the older version is supporting the newer, but this way you will be clear you have only the stand-alone 2004 version running. If Norton still picks that up as spyware you'll just have to live with it, I'm afraid.
The other option is to uninstall all versions and use a free alternative, such as one of the ones listed here; http://www.short-med...nload.php?dc=69
(The general Anti-Spyware programs being SpywareShooter, Spybot and AdAware, my personal favorite being AdAware)
However, ErikAlbert is quite correct in saying a multi-layered protection is best, and if you read around this forum there are discussions going on, and people talking about their personal favorites.
I, for instance, run a fully updated, firewalled XP home edition, with SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard, AVG 7.0 (set to update and autoscan daily), AdAware SE, and use FireFox as my default browser. I never get MalWare.
(All those are free programs, apart from XP obviously!)
