DSNETTE, I went to symantec site and guess what YOU ARE WRONG! The CLIENT portion of this edition IS meant to be installed on MULTIPLE machines. The ADMINISTRATOR portion is designed to be on the server or whatever machine you deem to be the admin. But um...... thanx .... for ....... your lack of help in this matter. Its greatly.......unappreciated.
-P.
BTW, when NAV is sold (given) to someone else the license agreement goes with it.

right....there is the server portion and the client portion...the server you install on one machine ON A CORPORATE NETWORK the client is installed on a workstation ON A CORPORATE NETWORK....THE CORPORATION that wants the software has to #1 purchase the software (you techincally only purchase the server as a software package) then #2 the CORPORATION must puchase INDIVIDUAL LICENSES for EACH workstation that they will be installing the client on.... norton corporate IS NOT DESIGNED for home use...it's plain and simple....YOU DIDN'T BUY THE SOFTWARE...AND YOU DIDN'T BUY ANY LICENSES TO INSTALL THE CLIENT ON YOUR HOME COMPUTER thereby...it's theft

unless the corp. has negotiated a home use liscence. My client allows for symantec 8.1 to be installed on a home system. with the caveat that it is the system that is used to vpn into work.

also if you read the liscencing properly... you don't own the product. you ownly own the right to use it in accordance with their policies. In other words if you didn't pay for it or your employer didn't pay for you to use it then your in violation of the liscence.

after reading your original topic..... dsenette stated it very clearly.

as to your technical issue. This is par for the course. either way your going to have to remove the software. Please see symantec for the information on that.
