I need to reinstall Notorn's on a pc that is currently part of an NT Server network. If I take it to another facility that does not have a network and then do the reinstall as a stand-alone pc, will that change any network settings?

Will I be able to place it back into the NT network okay after the reinstall?

Thanks.

Are you asking about Norton AntiVirus? If so, which version?

This is a basic question about uninstalling/reinstalling an application in a stand-alone (out of the network) mode. The pc in question is running XP Pro under NT Server 4.0.

My concern is that the network settings may change when I bring up the pc in a non-network/stand-alone basis and do the Norton's reinstall/uninstall. Then when the pc is put back into the network--at another facility--will XP Pro kow that the pc is now back in that mode?

The reason I need to redo Norton's is that the OS has been upgraded from Win98 to XP Pro and Norton's 2003 was not working right under XP Pro.

Well Norton does have enterprise versions of their software that update definitions from a central server rather than the Internet. In this case, it would certainly not work correctly as a stand alone computer. However, in general, most software installed on a network will work just fine when removed from the network.
