Norton Internet Security 2004 won't let me run simultaneous Agent!

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Fumble Fingers, Aug 21, 2004.

  1. I had to upgrade to NIS 2004 because my old NIS 2000 is no longer
    supported. So I installed it and I've found that I can't run two
    instances of Agent at once.

    I have an ISP news server and a premium news server. I'm using Agent
    1.93 and for years and years I've run Agent downloading from both news
    servers simultaneously. Now with NIS 2004 when I have Agent running on
    either of these servers the attempt to get the second one going locks
    up the second one on the splash page. In NIS 2004 I've given Agent
    permission to do what it wants.

    Win98 SE on a P-3 800 MHz w/512 MB RAM.

    Can anyone tell me how to get two instances of Agent running at once
    or am I now limited by this "upgrade?" I have the newer v. 2 of Agent
    but it isn't allowing simultaneous connections to multiple servers
    yet. And in fact I'm not sure I want that. Set in my ways, I suppose.
    I hope someone can help me.
