    I've installed Norton Personal Firewall using one of three id's on a WinXP Home SP1 system. When I switch to one of the other id's it tells me the O/S has been upgraded since Internet Security was installed and I have to uninstall/reinstall.

    Is there a process to installing software on a multi-use WinXP system that I have missed?

    THanks ...

    Did you install it while logged in as administrator ?
