    I installed Norton Personal Firewall 3 onto my Mac OS 10.3.2 system and I found out if you use Fast user switching Mac OS X crashes.

    I did a clean install of 10.3.2 and installed Norton Personal Firewall 3 again and it still crashed, I downloaded the latest update for the software & it still crashed. SO I un-installed it.

    Version 2 works fine.

    But then again there is the free industrial strength firewall in OS X.

    I think the general opinion is that Mac OS X + Anything Norton = poop!

    Stuff only works when you need to fix a HD problem (none of that individual file problem fixes -- aka, file blender) when booting from another volume. Basically just catalog/disk level repairs.

    The deleted file recovery stuff would be nice, but the method in which it works is at odds with bug free operation -- so don't throw important crap away.
