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.


Suggestion for Symantec

Okay - it's pretty clear that Norton Internet Security 2007 is a load of crap. It's likely that anyone that has NIS07 will be reluctant to purchase any future Symantec products. Also, they would be quite willing to share their experiences with anyone that might want to listen. Some might even start a blog to vent their frustration.

Norton Internet Security 2007 is so bad that it is a perfect cases for a Class Action lawsuit. I would certainly be willing to provide input (this blog) to such an action. I've seen successful Class Actions on issues less clear than this one.

The only solution might be to offer a free copy of, or a massive discount on, some future version (on the assumption that most of these stupid errors are fixed) to those that had to experience the nightmare of NIS07.

Seriously - Symantec really should make amends for the fiasco that is NIS07...
