Upgraded three computers so far to NIS2007 and here's the results...
1 seemingly sucessful install, computer had a noticible reduction in performance. System told me that the subscription had expired even though I had just upgraded from NIS2006 to NIS2007. Tried Symantec's website suggestions, finally ran Norton's complete removal tool and reinstalled NIS2007 from scratch. Subscription problem cured, system showed a full year available, system performance slightly slower, but useable with NIS2007.
1 seemingly sucessful install, computer on reboot took 20 minutes to come back up. All booting there after was a 20 minute exercise in patience. Did a complete, comprehensive scan with several other products for malware with system coming up clean. Uninstalled, reinstalled and same results. Used Norton's complete removal tool before next reinstall, it initialized a complete unistall of AOL off the computer somehow. Still same results, 20 MINUTES TO REBOOT AND RUNS SLOW! Removed, installed AVG Gold free version, Microsoft Defender and ZoneAlarm firewall.
1 seemingly successful install on a computer that had the Norton complete removal tool run on it a week prior to trying to install NIS2007. Kept telling me that the subscription had expired. Went to Symantec's website, ran down all their fixes for the problem, still showed subscription expired. Contacted Symantec support, spent another 2 hours, still no resolution of the expired subscription on a complete new install of NIS2007. I do not have more than 4 hours of my life to waste on this kind of junk, so we pulled up the Norton complete removal tool, wiped NIS2007 installed AVG, Microsoft Defender and ZoneAlarm.
We are initializing two chargebacks as the NIS2007 was completely unusable on these systems. I'm looking into Kaspersky and AntiVir at the moment as the rest of the computers will be coming up for subscription renewal in six months. Personally, AntiVir, Microsoft Defender and some firewall product will replace what has become an unusable monolithic mess that has become a roadblock to getting work done.
