BM, norton put out an update a bit back. it was supposed to install and update the version you had already running. it did not work. i ended up uninstalling the old version and installing the new. never heard a thing from norton or the govt about it, but had to do it on two computers.
thought maybe it was because the computers were running vista? what are you using at work?
to be fair, norton seems to have fixed some of the really annoying things. most of the time it's just there and as long as you don't run a deep scan while you are trying to use the computer, it's not bad.
