Title of that thread is misleading.
Norton 2009 products do not work properly with win7.

Symantec made a temporary 2009 beta that is compatible, but it is in beta, and you have to reactivate it every 14 days.

Nope, about a week ago they released a update.
My friend is using Norton antivirus 2009 serial on windows 7 on his computer without a problem. He used the same serial that he used when he had windows Vista. No problems.
I think your thinking about 2010 - Were you haft to reactivate it every 14 days. Lol!

I visited norton website yesterday, no news about any update.
There was a statement that norton product are compatible, but if you click on the link you are directed to 2010 beta.

Further more as a subscriber I should get an email when the update is released.

I will go to norton website now and check again.

Ok, how typical.

Update is not yet available for Dutch version.
That's why I couldn't find it, nor got any message.

By the way.
There seem to be quite a few issues with that patch, so I will stay with 2010 beta for a while.
Has been very stable.

I just did a full scan.
It took only 1hr and 36min. vs 5hr and 30min that NOD 4 took.
Norton found the 5 trojans I planted just like NOD 4 did.

But it found another 8 threats I didn't know of (all in rar files), and NOD didn't find.

So much for Virus Bulletin's reliability.

Edit: forgot to mention Norton used 30% to 50% CPU allowing me to work, vs NOD crippling my PC at 90% to 100% CPU.

I have NIS 2009 installed on both win 7 rtm pc's at home and have zero issues with it. No errors in event logs and even their Sonar thingy seems to be at 100%.

Edit- version is 16.7.2.10

Good to hear.

From what I've seen in my brief visit to the norton forum, is that a lot of people were having problems with the patch.
But it's impossible to say how many people don't have issues because they won't complain on the forum.

Hi, I was just wanting to see if anyone has had any problems with Norton and Windows 7. I recently installed build 7100 on my mother's machine and she insisted that Norton was installed. I eventually relented and installed it, but it only seems to cause problems... Anyone else??
