NAV 2004 Users Be Aware!

If you have downloaded the latest update WMI or Norton Windows Mangement Instrumentation for NAV2004 it would pay you to go to the symantec support and read up about this little item before you instal SP2. Or if you have installed SP2 and run NAV 2004 you may have already had a security alert from symantec.
Go To http://service.symantec.com/SUPPORT/sharedtech.nfs/pfdocs/2004070812114713
Better still go to the site before you download SP2

Sorry John but that is the link given by Symantec on their site and is the same that was on my address bar where I copied it from.

Thanks for the fix Frank.

I have Norton Anti Virus and recently my Windows XP laptop did an auto update with SP2. I have seen the warnings and was aware of the risks but I have Goback installed and decided to risk it. It worked flawlessly, both installing and in practice. The firewalls "spoke" to each other as did the AV software. After adjusting the settings as appropriate I have had no problems and some noticable if minor improvements. I do not generally praise Microsoft, but I thought that since this worked like it's supposed to I would say so.

My experience exactly...

In reply to: Re: NAV 2004 Users Be Aware!

Mine was like yours. I was really pleased with the install and performance afterwards. Only thing I would suggest is doing a cleanup after install as there is lots of junk leftovers. Cleanup seems to make my system perform better and faster.

Good luck to the rest of you out there!

Happy

http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/sp2/faq.html#4 is the link you should be using, not the previous one.

Norton AntiVirus -
Installing Service Pack 2 will not affect Norton AntiVirus. The Windows Security Center will be aware that you have Norton AntiVirus installed, but it will not be able to determine its working status due to Symantec's tamper-protection technology. The Development team is working to integrate Windows Security Center with NAV 2004. The only reason you are getting alerts from this after XP SP2 is installed is that is cannot communicate with the Anti-Virus software.

This is a dead link. Two days ago, before reading this post, my computer installed XP SP2. When the computer restarted, there was an error message that Norton Antivirus was not working. In the list of error resolutions, the given advice was to uninstall/install it then reboot. This didn't fix the problem. Symantec seems to be very hard to get help from, and they hae no 1-800 #, so while you are on hold for nearly eternity, you are racking up the phone charges. I may switch to mcafee or someone else.

Free Alternative...

In reply to: Re: NAV 2004 Users Be Aware!

SP-2 recognized and accepted AVG 6 Free immediately and without problems of any kind. There are others as well... I happen to like AVG that has auto updates and scans as well. User's choice on these. Just an alternative... you may like others better.

Happy Computing!
