Norton AntiVirus 2007 turned off Vista Security Center



Ok, I've read a number of... ahem... comments here about Norton. I still
want to give it a try, I have it, what the heck. I installed Norton
AntiVirus 2007.

Now, my systray has a dialog whenever I log in that says "The Security
Center serivce is turned off". When I click on it, it has a button for
turning it on, but it won't start. (This is a clean Vista install, there is
nothing added to it except Firefox and Norton AV 2007).

Anyway, I did read from a Vista window that firewalls conflict with each
other and only one should be used. I guess Norton AV 2007 is including a
firewall now? So I'm not surprised that it isn't playing nicely with Vista
Security Center and turned it off.

How can I get Vista to recognize NAV2007 and thus not complain about not
having any firewall protection?


hi there
-- i'm running nav 2007 aswell and not having any problems at all .All i
can suggest is to make sure windows fire wall is turned of you can do this in
the security center or in ''services'' although when i installed nav2007 it
automaticaly turned windows fw off possibly because my machine came with a 60
day trial pre installed .It must also be said that nav2007 is the best norton
to date , it does work despite what you might read elsewere usually it just
sits in the background doing what it's told i have no complaints .
