Norton Internet 2007 -- Bleagh!

I updated from 2006 to 2007 since Norton pretty much no longer sells software, but instead one year licenses disguised as software. At the price, I thought it was worth it.

Well, before long, on an update, it broke. I checked the website, discovered that you now need to use a special uninstaller and they suggest you download and use an updated, not as buggy, version (that also distorted and lost registration information, though I eventually solved that).

Now it breaks regularly on updates, which results in a system that doesn't run right. So I have a folder with the new uninstaller and with the new download, requires fixing about twice a week.

Not a solution. I'm going to try either Computer Associates new anti-virus/etc. or go back to PC-Cillian.

--------------------------

At least my Mom's surgery went well and she is very cheerful. My hospital visits have been pleasant, though getting caught up at work has been time consuming (in law, the work just piles up while you are gone as if you were still there but saving the work the whole time).

FIOS was installed and broke Sunrocket the way the installer put it in. Now to try to fix that.
