    vista and norton 360

    got a vista laptop here with norton 360 on it. It connects to the wireless and reports it can access local and internet, indeed i can ping yahoo.com and access ftp servers via cli

    however i cannot access any web pages with either ffox of iexplore. Im sure its something to do with the norton crap, but whenever I disable those services, i get a general hardware error when trying to connect to network devices.

    whats going on!?

    norton has been wiped and it works fine now.

    I hate pre-installed crap on laptops.

    N360 can be an absolute pile of poo sometimes. I've lost count of the number of laptops that I've come across that are running so slowly with it installed.

    Norton is now on my list of "malware: uninstall immediately" when anyone contacts me about problems with their machine.

    It does nothing that Avast or AVG can't handle with 1/3rd of the resources.
