Hi all,
C: is my windows drive.
I have Norton av 2005, it came with my computer. I have three accounts on my machine, one admin and two limited user. recently I downloaded and installed zone alarm personal firewall.
I only use my admin account for instalation and updates, norton and/or microsoft. We do download other third party software to one or other of the limited user accounts, save them to desktop, then copy and past to the DATA D: only from D: are they then installed using the Addmin acc.
I'll be back, I'm sorry, but we have a nasty thunderstorm over head...

sorry about that.
We, using zone alarm, blocked norton form updateing on the limited accounts. To day, however, I tryed to update norton on the admin. account, it gave me an error msg. I followed the advice from norton and managed to update norton. I then ran a scan, it found nothing. All seems well. Except for one, what may be but a slight enomaly, the icon for eRecovery on the admin account has changed from what it was, which I can't discribe, to one square white box with a blue bar at top.
That same icon appears normal on the other two limited user accounts.
i'm sorry for the long story.

It might well be nothing, but I just thought I'd ask.

Sorry for the long pause, hope you guys reply, even if it is only to tell me that I should not be concerned.

Yeah, it's probably nothing, but the practice of not running as admin all the time is a good move on your part.

I'd run eRecovery from the admin account just to check that Norton/ZoneAlarm haven't disabled the application . Obviously dont go as far as allowing the utility to back up your system unless you intend doing so anyway but go far enough to ensure it is functional . I know a lot of people swear by both Norton and ZoneAlarm but I find them both very intrusive , to the point where they will do what they see fit without consulting the user .

I agree 100% with chilkotardis but would check out the aforementioned for peace of mind ....
