I'd very much doubt that those 2 keys were created by a Norton or a McAfee application. That being said, you could download/run the Norton Removal Tool [1] and the McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool, [2] rebooting after each run, to make sure there are no "leftovers."

If you have any further questions, it would be best to post them in this Avast forum instead:
