    Installed it.

    On reboot, it should bring up an activation window.

    It doesn't!

    Go to support site, as any reasonable user would.

    It says: if all else fails, double click on the NSW icon; call up the
    wizard and follow him to the promised land.

    Double click on the icon gets nothing in return.

    I reread the box in which this program came. It says 24/7 support
    online. What a lot of crap.

    It's McAfee for me.

    Any ideas why the activation window doesn't show?

    Yeah, I've done that about 3 times.

    I thought maybe firewall was the problem, so I dumped it also, and
    still no luck.

    Bummer that you can't contact a human at Symantec.

    Your shorter link is:

    Googles text archives at:

    But I would uninstall Norton/Symantec products. They seem to cause
    more problems then they are worth.

    Freeware is better. ;)
