    Anyone beta testing this ? In the past 10 days I've gotten 2 emails
    (beta releases) about it from Symantec. The second email told me to do
    a fresh install /restore my PC to a point prior to the install of their
    FIRST beta install. Luckily I hadn't yet installed the first one.
    My question: is this typical with Symantec ? Do they expect me to wipe
    my PC with each release ? That seems a bit much and if it's "normal" to
    do a fresh install each week I guess I'll not install the new release
    either.

    Symantec is just another money greedy company charging for viral
    protection on what should all be free. Get something good, like Avast,
    AVG Free. AVG is good for Windows Vista, not sure about Avast.
