Symantec has posted a new beta build of NIS and NAV (18.0.0.128) on the beta center, which should contain fixes for all of the bugs we have reported so far.

A key valid for 120 days comes with it, since they will be slowing down the release cycle in the following month, until general release. I guess it also means they are quite confident in this build, and it seems like all potential patches will probably come through LiveUpdate.

WIth regards to the fact that NIS2011 doesn't uninstall properly, it's a common 'feature' when beta testing any Norton product. I'm a beta tester and we are always told to revert to a previous image when uninstalling the current build.

Booooo......It's stuff like this that keeps me from installing and using apps like this. I shouldn't have to use a 3rd party tool to get an application off my machine properly. That's a Norton issue.

Wait 'til the final release then.

Norton products have always been tough to get rid of over the years. This is nothing new.

The new versions are much better at removing themselves.

There may be some entries left over (like many other programs) but they shouldn't create a problem.

Well, the new build has an application error at shutdown for some of us, or all, we're working on it.

On the preceding discussion, I can remark that the usual uninstaller has worked well for me.
