This blog is primarily concerned with NIS 2007 (and a bit on NIS 08). I have nothing to say about more recent versions.

This blog is more or less dormant (except for occasional comments on related news), and is being left on-line as a historical record and perhaps as a warning to future generations of anti-virus coders.


Desktop fading away...

My old reliable desktop is slowly sinking under a rising tide of Symantec problems.

It locks up. I do a hard reboot. It runs a Check Disk and typically finds about a dozen corrupted Symantec files. Nothing but Symantec files.

I'm going to have to set aside a day during my Xmas vacation to uninstall Symantec, repair XP, and then try a fresh install of NIS 07.

Then of course, I'll have to download 137 Gajillion bytes of Symantec updates (which undoubtedly will involve about 900 reboots).

Better make that TWO days...
