I have had to disable NIS every time I want to synch my mobile phone. This worked fine until recently the Disable option on taskbar menu just disappeared. norton suggested I am not logged on as supervisor - but the user list is greyed out too on NIS window.
i checked i am logged on as supervisor by XP but there's no way to change my NIS account. So Norton suggested I uninstall - however XP Add/Remove programs won't let me do this as it says i'm not the adminsitrator - een though account says I am.
So Im left with no way to disable/enable NIS, can't synch my phone and transfer software. I can't uninstall NIS either. The only other clue is that sometimes when the PC starts, NIS comes up as disabled and i have to restart to get it enabled.
Everything else works fine - and I've scanned my system for hostile programs. Anyone else had th esame problem and solved it? Norton seem to have no idea and have stopped responding to help requests!
Thanks for your help!
