    Any thoughts about disinfection?

    I like how it doesn't bombard you with pop-ups about this component being off blah blah blah like N360.

    OK, so I tried the product key code from NIS 2005 and to my disappointment....it did not work (not enough letters/numbers in the code).

    For those who have activated NIS 2009 w/ 2003 and 2005 key codes.....please advise how you accomplished this?

    Keys for the Norton Internet Security Family migrate from 2006 ==> 2009. Therefore, a 2003 or 2005 key will not work with 2009.

    If I was you, I would buy a 2006 key online for discount prices....its outdated...and use that key in 2009.

    I decided to install and test this out a few days ago but today I had a BSOD on the driver symtdi.sys and oddly enough a kernal or minidump wasn't created. Didn't have this problem before Norton was installed.

    Anyone else have similiar problems?

    Another thing I noticed is a message added to my CHKDSK's that says: Usn Journal verification completed.

    Even after uninstalling Norton & using the removal tool the message is still there after running a CHKDSK. Anyone know what that is?

    a description of USN Journal from Microsoft:

    "The update sequence number (USN) change journal, which provides a
    persistent log of all changes made to files on the volume. As files,
    directories, and other NTFS objects are added, deleted, and modified,
    NTFS enters records into the USN change journal, one for each volume on
    the computer. Each record indicates the type of change and the object
    changed. New records are appended to the end of the stream."

    "Programs can consult the USN change journal to determine all the
    modifications made to a set of files. The USN change journal is much
    more efficient than checking time stamps or registering for file
    notifications. The USN change journal is enabled and used by the
    Indexing Service, File Replication Service (FRS), Remote Installation
    Service (RIS), and Remote Storage."

    If you are using index services on a NTFS, you'll probably see this usn check. This should be normal and may not have something to do with NIS.

    The USN check has always been there for me even before I installed NIS.

    Installed NIS 2009 and still wondering if it is running. It is SO lightweight it is hard to believe it actually is working - but, it caught my pet hidden virus before it was placed on the hard drive, so I guess it works. It's kind of scary having Norton so light LOL!! Now I wonder about the registry glut. Other than Firefox starting a little slower, I don't even notice NIS being installed. Hats off to the Norton folks - still a little scared though - heh heh.

    Yes its funny. NIS2009 is so light that you can hardly believe its doing its job. It would be nice if they would introduce any kind of stats about the number of scanned files like in NOD or AntiVir :) Call me crazy but i find it really interesting to know how many files were scanned before i shut down my pc.
