    Just because it's "compatible" doesn't make it okay. ;)


    Ladies and gentlemen, stand back please.

    I'd like my Mac's to be more like Windows machines - I'll just use Norton.

    Sheesh...junk...

    Why would anyone bother buying this? I'll leave it up to my "PC Colleagues" to worry about viruses and I'll save my processor cycles for folding and downloading!

    It is probably to stop you passing on any PC viruses in your email to other PC users since Macs can "receive" viruses in email while not directly being affected by them.

    What they meant to say, was:

    Norton AV 9 was created from the ground up to contain many useful and easy-to-use methods that could be used to crash Panther and prevent operation of applications designed for Panther. While many users have reported that Norton AV 9 was effective in crashing applications under Tiger, we weren't satisfied to provide just so-so performance. Therefore, we have adapted our system to include crash mechanisms specifically intended for Tiger.

    I have been a Norton customer since the beginning. Overall, I have had good service from their products. Currently have Norton AV 9.0 installed. Do the weekly updates. Will wait to hear about upgrade pricing

    It took me weeks to undo the damage the last Norton AV did...

    has the current version been upgraded so that it will now completely distroy a mac, or is it still possible to recover a system after being infected with NAV?

    In other news, Norton has announced "Norton Anti-Poltergeist for Macs" which will keep the pesky undead from haunting your machine. Just because it hasn't happend yet doesn't mean you shouldn't be protected!
