    I tried to restore a partition on my HDD. Did quite a few times since I had multiple problems in the last 3 weeks. Restoring is no problem with TI8. BUT everytime I restore a partition, my Norton LiveUpdate! asks me for activation. Is this behaviour normal? Or am I forgetting something?

    Also when restoring a partition which I know has no files necessary for running OS or any apps - only data files image - from windows xp environment, i get the msg that partition is locked so cannot restore. I have to boot from the bootable cd and then restore. and when i am back to xp, norton jumps up to say i need to activate!!!

    Help me understand this.
