Norton Antivirus 2009 hates BOINC

A few days ago, I got a LiveUpdate Notice that I could upgrade to the latest version of Norton Antivirus for free as part of my annual subscription.

This was new. In the past, I just kept renewing the subscription of Norton Antivirus...until they decide that the version is too old and force me to buy the latest version. That's happened a couple of times on this computer (the other computer died earlier this year, but I wasn't planning to renew its subscription for this reason....it had become a dedicated BOINC machine)

Well, upgrading proved to be a mistake. The advanced auto-protect feature, which "Provides real-time protection against threats and proactively detects unknown security risks on your computer." Keeps reporting that certain BOINC processes as high risk and removing them.

Of course, it nags annoyingly if I turn the feature off....but running BOINC is more important to continuing to be a Symantec customer. So, I guess I'll be looking to replace NAV2009 with something else before my subscription expires in 90 days....

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.
