DSL and Norton AV

    I switched from dial up to DSL. Went fairly smooth (with a little help
    from our friends in India, a local DSL service tech testing my wires,
    and 2-3 ad hoc advisors).

    All my internet software is smart enough to find the internet without
    dialing - except Norton AV (2003). It keeps looking for a dialer and
    then says it can't reach the internet. (well, duh!)

    So, how do I fix this ... with the understanding that I am not taking
    out my modem or doing anything that prevents me from dial up as back
    up access to the net.

    Thanks,

    Roy

    Addendum _ I figured out how to download and install updates in web
    based interface, but that seems kind of lame.
