    My Norton AntiVirus just upgraded from v2008 to v2009

    Several weirdnesses ensued:

    1. At the Windows Welcome screen, arrow keys could move the user selection up & down, but no alphanumeric keys made any visible entry (dot) in password field. :eek: Clicking Shut Down and restarting corrected this (for now, anyway).

    2. The [Start] > [Log Off] > [Switch Users] button is missing. This would be a straightforward fix, except that...

    3. In Control Panel, User Accounts lacks "Change the way users log on or off"! :confused: [Is XP SP3's REAL purpose to hose up a nicely-running XP SP2 box, so the owner will FINALLY spring for a Vista system?]

    4. Clicking any of the "Learn About..." links opens the help page in IE7, but with its contents crowded to the left :eek: and the yellow bar at the top. Clicking to allow blocked content (Are you sure? :mad: YES!) results in yet another dialog about an ActiveX control that "might be unsafe" -- but the only new ActiveX control on this PC is one from Symantec, installed during the NAV 2009 upgrade. :p

    P.S. NAV 2009 was the FIRST product I've run into that did NOT permit its EULA to be selected, printed or saved. :p I like to keep a record of things I've agreed to, but that text was out of reach! Sixteen screenshots later... :mad:

    May have solved #2. Something (?) had enabled Offline Files, which apparently does not coexist with Fast User Switching.

    Partially solved #3. Control Panel STILL doesn't offer this option, but by opening C:\WINDOWS\Help\usercpl.chm, I was able to click on a link back to User Accounts that DID. A mystery!

    Still no change in #4. Disabled the Symantec Intrusion Protection ActiveX control, closed all instances of IE or Explorer-related windows, and reopened Control Panel. No change. :(

    Maybe restarting will help.

    Re: #4 Restarting did NOT help. :(
