Norton 2013 beta test - any incompatibilities?

Now that you've installed the software, and have it running (I hope) on your computer, have you noticed any problems with your other software, or with the way your computer is running generally?

I cannot get Outlook 2003 to receive e-mails. It seems to stick at 50% complete in the status bar and goes no further. To be fair it has been doing this on and off for a while, more so since installing the free Norton 360 from the last beta testing, but that usually corrected itself at the second attempt. This does not happen with the latest product; it simply refuses to go beyond 50% whatever I try and do.

At this stage I cannot say that NIS is to blame. It may just be a coincidence. When I have more time, I shall uninstall NIS 2013 and see if that solves it.

Have you tried disabling the Norton plug-in for Outlook?

FE - thank you for the tip. I assume you refer to the Norton anti-spam plug in. When I eventually located it and turned it off, there was no improvement. It still sticks at 50%. I've switched the plug-in back on and still no change.

It is getting late. Perhaps tomorrow will bring inspiration rather than desperation.

Been running it now for nearly 24 hours and used most of my regular programs and everything appears to be working AOK. This morning I had one report which confused me when I went to one of my regular sites on the Internet and I really cannot understand what it meant but it has not returned. Report said "IPS Alert Malicious DNS Domain No Action Required" The strange thing was that the attacking computer was in my own name.

When I try to open a "Python" program I get - "Fc-Solve.exe has stopped working." I then close the warning box/window and the card program works ok.

Out of interest I did the same on a Win 8 setup and no warning box/window.

PC generally works the same as pre install.

Has a persistent crash whenever Softmaker Email client opened - Although Norton shows this program as green and used by some users I can't get the mail to work with Norton at all, other parts of the Office Suite work OK - The program will not open but actually remains in memory & it's not possible to terminate the Email in Taskmaster either - 'Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit'

In respect to my last post I've emailed 'Softmaker Tech Support' with the all information I have regarding this possible conflict.

So far, no obvious incompatibilities. I did burn a "coaster", using Nero 9, which is unusual. Next burn was fine. But, it did happen ocasionally pre Norton beta...

N0 problems and my additional security software systems used as back up to the main anti virus one are not affected. Have run a quick scan and all is well
