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.


What's the difference between these two screen captures?

About one-and-a-half minutes !!!!!!!!!!



Bwaa ha ha ha ha ha...

Installation "complete".

Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, take a screen capture, crop it and edit it for clarity, waiting, take another screen capture, etc...

What the hell is Symantec doing in that one-and-a-half minutes? Is is secretly computing additional digits of Pi? What could it possibly be doing? The installation is complete, so what the hell is it doing for the following 90-odd seconds?

One of the great mysteries of life... The Way Of The Symantec.
