Upgraded to Norton Antivirus 2006

Link: http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/products/virus_protection/nav2006/index.html

I knew my Norton Antivirus subscription was about to run out for my laptop...but I was waiting for the start of a new billing cycle on my Discover card before doing the renewal. So, I tried to do it today.

Well, I found out that I can no longer get subscriptions for NAV2002 (OEM-Toshiba)...and I would have to upgrade to NAV2006. So, I bit the bullet and did the upgrade.

After numerous reboots, and some configuration tweaks...I think I have it working the way I want...on the most part. The main annoyance was the "Norton Protection Center"....telling me that my update policy needed to be changed. Its a laptop, I would rather be informed that there is an update than have it automatically download and install them while I'm trying to use my laptop...potentially from an unknown Internet connection (rather than safely at home behind my firewall, etc.)

Hopefully just disabling the service is all that it'll take to silence the annoyance.

Will have to see if it causes other issues (other than the boot is now even slower on my poor laptop). It seems to not like my BlackBerry Desktop Manager, but I didn't have my BlackBerry with me...so I didn't investigate further.

Hopefully, I'll still be able to renew my subscription to NAV2004 when it comes due at the end of June. Considering I only purchased and installed last June....the machine had come with NAV2003 (OEM-DELL)...and I upgraded because of performance issues (after dealing with Symantec support, removing it and trying competitor AntiVirus products, and then relenting to the NAV strong hold).

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
