    Hre's my dilemma,
    I uninstalled Norton products 2003;
    -Anti Virus
    -System Works
    -Personal Firewall

    ... try other products and see if they use less system resources. Syamntec wins with less resources used over TrendMicro!

    After reinstalling symantec products and having a problem with getting "Common Client Update", I wiped the drive and started fresh :)

    The common client update error was related to not doing an update after ALL titles were installed. That's not the dilemma, here it is...

    NOW, what happens is I am getting ads in web sites I never used to.
    For instance the ad at the top of www.cnn.com or www.FMQB.com .

    These are ads that should not be showing with a fresh install of nortons
    and not having to touch any settings.

    In Norton Personal Firewall, I have Ad Blocking turned on.

    At cnn.com the ad at the top has this URL:
    http : / / ar.atwola.com/content/ ..etc,etc, (long url, truncated for here)

    I am now also getting pop up installs "do you want to install etc...always trust content from etc"

    I Use
    Win2000 sp4
    all norton products 2003

    anyone have any ideas? thanks
