I've tried downloading the new patch for merged FB+PF installation, and have gotten as far as 100 megs downloaded before Norton sees something an shuts it down. Will turning off script blocking help? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

U should ditch Norton, and use a newer, better up-to-date A-V program...... IMHO. There's your problem.

Agreed. I switched from Norton to AVG...a vast difference for the better. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Use AVG Free antivirus.... way better than Norton ever thought of being.

Key word here is FREE. I'll never pay for Norton's junk again.

Is it ever possible to post anything here any more without some 10-year-old trashing you? Are people's ego's so fragile that they have to pump themselves up by bragging to you that they have a BETTER software. And it was FREE? Why don't some of you grow up? And why should I take the advice of such ******s?

The simple answer to your simple question is I have Norton 2005, it was running when I downloaded and I had no problems at all. If there's a conflict, I didn't experience it.

You might try shutting it down and turning on your Windows firewall (which you already have) instead (you can't have both Windows and Norton firewalls on or you will have conflicts).

Okay. I'm on dialup, which means a 20-hour download time. I'll give it one more try tonight and if that doesn't work I'll just hang on for the expansion pack. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I've used Norton, I've used McAfee, I've used AVG. Much prefer AVG. It's free, it's simple, automatic updates, and it works very well.

No probs here with Norton.

Tried AVG, Mcafee etc. Norton seems to pick things up others didn't esp AVG.

Don't trust PC security to free stuff anymore after a few bad experiences. Tried my other machine on my network with AVG. I wasn't impressed with it.

Just my opinion

I have Norton on my laptop, and have no trouble downloading from UBI servers. Script blocking is running. I think you may have a problem elsewhere.

No problem downloading using NAV 2005 from either Systemworks 2005 or NIS 2005.

What you need is Get Right download manager. If you get a halt in your download, get right will let you start right where you left off...

By the way it works great, I use it for HUGE files

Let me tell you how some of those "free" AV's and firwalls make they're money.

about 25% comes from honest people who pay to register it.

75% comes from companies who pay them to get they're popups and spyware past the firewall/av software.

For determining the best antivirus software for your needs I would reccomend this website:

http://www.av-test.org

After working on many machines that have issues with NAV/NIS versions after "2003" the primary cause of corruption on the machine after installing NAV/NIS is due to malware/viruses that were resident in the machine before the installation occoured. I would reccomend starting from a clean install of NT 5.0/5.1 before installing any Norton product, as they tend to corrupt the registry rather quickly when LiveUpdate application is run on a "dirty" install of Win NT. I would not reccomend Norton or Mcafee (Network Associates) for anti-virus protection due to the fact that these product families are the most commonly targeted by malware and viruses.

If you are a MS customer and need free AV software you can try http://my-etrust.com/microsoft for Computer Associates AV software.
