You can keep Norton if you want, it's your choice, but it was the sole cause if the BSODs. Maybe clearing out the other stuff listed above will help, it's your call though.

I think I will remove Norton.

Even if it's just for testing purposes. Use MSE for a while and if the system is stable remove MSE and reintroduce Norton, see what happens. At least you know the cause, the options are there for how you want to proceed now.

If it were me personally though I'd be removing Norton. That's just my personal opinion.

I put MSE back on. But, what do I do about the old software? AVG Secure Search and Microsoft Family Safety. They have already been uninstalled. Apparently they have traces left behind.
