1. I just rebooted
2. I have NIS enabled
3. I dial up to the Intenet.
4. I get a connection (lame as it is...)
5. I open up the NIS program and get the current status. Everything looks kosher.
6. I click on the LIVEUPDATE tab and here's where the fun starts....
I sometimes get the liveupdate window to come up and sometimes I don't. When it does, everything is ok. When it does not come up no program I try to open after that will even come up. If I leave my machine sitting for about 10 minutes, if I am lucky, I might get some windows t pop up.
Otherwise, it's REBOOT time. I tell Windows to Shutdown...I sit and I wait, and wait...
I have plenty of RAM, so I don't see how it can be a RAM issue (which is what Symantec told me). Low resources my rear-end.
I just updated Norton a couple of days ago when I received an OUTBREAK ALERT from Norton. I thought, "hey, cool software. It actually is working!"
Q1: Is another program interfering with LIVEUPDATE? This happens almost daily. I try to update everyting first thing in the morning when I get into work so it's the same things in memory each time, right from a boot up.
This is really annoying and I need to figure out what is causing the problem. I can't kill any of Norton's resident memory programs and closing other programs (the ones I can figure out are safe to) doesn't alleviate the problem.
