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.


No. 7 on Google.

Link= Google 'Symantec Sucks'

Things are pretty quiet on the Symantec front. The main reason is that I have removed every trace of their products from my desktop PC. It now is much more stable and much more responsive. And to address The Peril That Is The Internet, I told the family members using it to not open strange attachments or click on weird things. So far so good. The WiFi router has a firewall with Stateful Packet Inspection, so that helps a bit.

In other words, for a more relaxing lifestyle, avoid Symantec.

PS: The laptop is also working reasonably well since I spent those several hours uninstalling and reinstalling NIS'07.
