When installing the program, it asks "DO YOU WANT TO INSTALL ACCOUNTS AND PARENTAL CONTROLS?" I say no because no one else uses my laptop and I don't need restrictions such as that. However, NIS is now not using it's full capabilities such as pop up blocking etc on IE. When I try to access NIS Options it gives me the message "ISUFFICIENT PRIVILEGES TO COMPLETE THIS OPERATION". Now, Norton website says this is because I am not logged on as a 'supervisior' under USER SETTINGS. Well, since I didn't install user accounts that option isn't even available to me.
So I installed 'parental controls and user accounts' and can now log on as a supervisor and change settings HOWEVER this additon slowed down boot and shutdown times CONSIDERABLY! Besides, I just don't NEED THEM. Not only that, but it has the VERY annoying habit of not USING the supervisor account at system startup, and I have to manually LOG ON every time I start my system. But not even that is consistent... sometimes it will... sometimes it won't.
I wish to uninstall 'USER ACCOUNTS and PARENTAL CONTROLS' but then I am 'locked out of NIS again.
P.S. Please don't respond if you just want to rag on Norton or tell me to use another product. I am really lookng for a solution. THANKS!
