Registry Command Help

I'm trying to make a registry or batch file for a manual uninstall of norton antivirus corporate 8.x. The instructions say to remove any reference to specific keys, i did a search and i get 30+ so i don't want to copy and paste all of those. Is there any way to make a batch or reg entry that will go through the entire registry removing keys with a specific title?

What I have done in the past is use Registry Crawler to search for the keys, highlight the ones you want to remove and then select export from the menu on the right.

All the keys will be saved to one reg file, then you can just add a minus sign before the name of the key you want to delete

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Norton AntiVirus Server]
"Type"=dword:00000110
"Start"=dword:00000002
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000000
"ImagePath"=hex(2):43,00,3a,00,5c,00,50,00,52,00,4f,00,47,00,52,00,41,00,7e,00,\
 31,00,5c,00,53,00,59,00,4d,00,41,00,4e,00,54,00,7e,00,31,00,5c,00,53,00,59,\
 00,4d,00,41,00,4e,00,54,00,7e,00,31,00,5c,00,52,00,74,00,76,00,73,00,63,00,\
 61,00,6e,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,00,00
"DisplayName"="Symantec AntiVirus Client"
"ObjectName"="LocalSystem"
"Description"="Provides real-time virus scanning, reporting, and management functionality for Symantec Client Security."

then when the file is run it will remove all the info in the key and the key itself
