I as well as many others don't seem to understand Norton.

They want their money, and Norton's going to do what it can to keep that. Sadly, they offer minimal Spyware portection, but nevertheless, it IS a scanner of a sort, and we all know that you can't have one scanner which serves the same purpose. Norton should just do away with it, but money rules over everything.

I for one don't believe that anyone buys norton for spyware protection though, or has something changed since i last looked.

Exactly, they don't. It just has a scanner built into its "Internet Worm Protection" feature, which scanns for Spywarelike activity. It's a "piss-poor" scanner though, but it still scanns just like a Spyware scnaner would, thus making any other scanner incompatible.
