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
