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?

"ie9 needs to recover" Yes I have been getting that as well, I did not take it as Norton and tried every thing sfc /scannow , reset explorer, and was even going to uninstal IE9 and reinstal but have not done it yet! It does not happen on the desktop running Vista and Norton 360 only on laptop W7 64bit so I cannot put it down to windows update this week because it started before that.

I've just done a major update & clean-out, installed & updated some Serif software, quite a bit of other updating, changed PDF viewer, all sorts without any issues. I haven't had any problems with IE9 though or crashes. PC running well Norton doesn't seem to cause any slowdowns so pleased so far.

I've been having several problems today with my Internet connection apparrntly being dropped on a reguale basis. I've also been getting the IE9 problem as listed above by sumnnystaines & ventad. There is no proof of course that this is down to Norton as it could well be one of the Microsoft Updates from yesterday as I'm having problems installing several of them on my laptop which seems to be rejecting them and that is not running Norton. Perhaps I should have held off with the Microsoft updates whilst doing this test but Secunia kept reminding me I had out od date programs and so I updated.

Everything seems to be working again OK without the need for me to do anything. Will keep monitoring as I will be working on my PC for the next several hours.

ms updates on a laptop without the beta running ok, my netbook with the beta is now getting frequent ie9 not responding/recover web page issues which i suspect might be norton beta, more so now other beta testers getting the problem.

other than this point no other problems.

not seen anything new other than change of name of the vault.

It's just a minor 'niggle'...but why does the little yellow NIS icon down at the bottom RH corner (on the taskbar) sometimes appear and sometimes not appear?

It's reassuring to me, anyway, to have it there all of the time.

There does seem to be some incompatibility between Norton and my DVD writer with Securdisc built in. I'm getting a number of coasters, maybe as many as a third, whereas I was getting zero before. (Used Acronis to "rewind" to pre Norton install, and zero coasters again). Using Nero 9, DVD writer is LG DVD IDE\CdRomHL-DT-STDVD-RAMGSA-H55L_1.06 Win 7 64 bit.

Dvd without Securdisk, no problems at all.... LiteOn LH20A1H works fine.
