    You may want to check out the Microsoft website and look for critical updates. This is a periodic download that MSFT provides for free. I use the Symantc products and often an upgrade will throw one or more things out of whack. The critical update usually fixes this.

    I would also recommend getting the Personal Firewall and the System works. It is your system, but the treats and hassles of getting a virus off your system make it worth it in my opinion.

  2. I absolutely agree with this statement. I spent over a month on my old job trying to figure out exactly this subject: how Symantecs product could affect other software functioning. Everyone must make sure that they go to and at least load up critical updates from MSFT after installation of Symantecs software. Latest MDAC installation is also highly recommended.
