Hmm that is strange because i have nothing installed on my PC but win 7 and norton AV 2010 beta.And i have tested with and without the norton beta.I can however report that norton 2009 NIS worked very well with win 7 apart from a known driver
incompatibility issue (which worried me somewhat) so i decided to start from scratch and reinstall win 7 and go with the norton beta.BIG MISTAKE in my experience,and it wouldnt be so bad really if it wasn't for the fact that i cannot get rid of the beta from my system.I think i will just reinstall win 7 and D/L norton 360 2009 and just make do with the driver incompatibility issue, at least my system was running more efficiently overall.Can you honestly say that you are happy with the overall system performance and speed after installing the norton 2010 AV beta?From the little research i have done on other forums (which i should have done before hand) Norton is way down on the list of AV soft that works well with win 7 (certainly as far as speed is concerned) i mean what is the use of technological advance if your AV is just gonna bring it all back down to square 1 again?
The reason i havent contacted norton is i am starting with a fresh install with no other softs installed, the math on this was pretty easy for me.
Fresh install Win 7 with no norton beta installed = run smoothly.
Fresh install Win 7 with norton beta installed = slooooooooooooooow.
thx for your reply though and i'm glad your happy with it.
