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.


You MUST reboot - NOW!

When you download updates to your operating system from Microsoft, no matter what sort of updates they are, you can always dismiss the reboot dialog box, continue working, and reboot later.


With Symantec, even if you click on the red X close window button, your PC will immediately reboot. This behaviour is different than Microsoft and is obviously unnecessary.

I mean if Microsoft can update THE OPERATING SYSTEM with a reboot whenever you get a chance, then Symantec should be able to provide the same sort of approach.

But when you hire 3rd rate programmers, and have management that just don't care, then this is the sort of result that you'd have to expect.
