Norton free network traffic monitor ''study'' or simto

by manicirishwriter / November 1, 2005 10:11 AM PST

Hey all-Just upgraded to NAV2006 and at some point on the site I hit something that brought me to an offer on the above. What they called it escapes me, and I had to clear all windows to set-up. This was a priority w/ W32.Spybot.Worm wigglin' on my system...

Extensive searching on Norton site gets me nowhere close. They acted like it was an ongoing ''study,'' or ''experiment,'' or ''data acquistion thingy.'' Stated that I would receive kinda different detailed info on all traffic and basically sounded very nice.

Not like ''good'' nice, but like I can eyeball and destroy some malignant eDisease, created by some literal monster mutation of a human that is intent on wanton destruction, fame and gain, but will excrutiatingly and painfully live a dying life of quiet desparation with other rodents of his ilk, always wondering why he comes up the ultimate loser.

Or something like that. Pretty bad run-on sentence, but heartfelt in it's virulence.

Thoughts? Thanks in advance for anything you got.
Frank

"I have no idea what you just said but"

Aw, c'mon-you must've had SOME idea, cause you came up w/ the right answer! (I just came into the Deep Extractor info from a white paper side, not product side like this.) I get a lot of that non-understandability, though. The entire family tree seems to operate towards the fringes of sane behavior.
What are you gonna do, you know?

But thank you very much-that's one less thing on this new wireless network that sure seems to take a lot of tweakin'. Now I just have to see if the issue that follows in the email below to Norton on sys req's can be resolved. Anybody w/ any thoughts feel free to share.

Hello NAV folks:

Just got NAV2006 and at one point in the set-up, it asked if I wanted to replace Win Firewall w/ NAV2006 internet protection (recommended.) So I did, but now I see that this DeepExtractor will run w/ NAV Internet & NAV Firewall, but no mention of built-into NAV2006 internet protection.

I use a Netgear wireless router as well as NetVeda Safety.net for add'l firewalls. They both track quite a bit of info; any hope w/ DE there?

Am I to infer that NAV2006 is incapable of communicating w/ DE but MS Firewall is,
or provides less info than MS Firewall?

If so, do I need to go back to MS Firewall?

If so, how do I disable NAV2006 "Firewall-ish-like" attributes?

Thanks in advance,
Frank

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
