You're in for a few nasty surprises from my own research. I think you'll find the system will seize up frequently, updates may not work etc.
As a McAfee Moderator I help out extensively at their forums and I can tell you that I tried every which way to get it to work in W7. Getting it to install in the first place was like pulling teeth.
I got it installed and then found out that I had no working Task Manager, couldn't access the Control Panel, Firewall and various other entities. Had to restore to an earlier time. Now I have settled with Avast A/V and Windows Firewall.
Even if it works I wouldn't want to have it on a beta system as it is liable to break any time, or break something else. Neither would I try Norton.

Well, from that last screenshot you can see me on control panel. :P Fact is, our differences is that you did a clean install while I didn't. I guess installing in on windows 7 breaks it, and installing it on Vista then upgrade to 7 makes it work.

About Norton, yeah it really sucks based on my experience years ago.

Well I wish you luck, hope it functions OK. You are the only one so far that I know of eith it working on Windows 7.

If it malfunctions there wont be any support available as the OS isn't officially supported.
