    My ISP rogers announced windows 2000 will not be compatible in a couple of days so i am happy to know they must be changing their AV from norton 2006 to something else.

    I tried looking over the web but could not find a website listing AV's that do not work on 2000. I hope it is norton 2007 because i could only find that does not support windows 2000 out of other major AV's.

    I could just wait a week but i wanna know if there are any possible good av's.

    NAV 2007 doesnt support Windows 2000 either, so what OS do you have?

    Sorry i confused you. I wanted to know what av's do not support 2000 because my ISP sent an email announcement that the newer AV will not support 2000.

    I have XP SP2.

    Wonder why Norton is no longer supporting older systems. You would think they would at least try stick ahead instead of eating other companies.

    Too bad i will be stuck with Norton 2007 when 2008 comes out :(.

    My understanding is that it shouldn't matter since Norton is subscription based now. You can upgrade to the next version as long as it is during your current subscription period. In my case I bought '07 back in March and I should have around 240 days left when '08 is supposed to be released. I can upgrade to '08 with my current key when it comes out (I really have no choice now if you read my post in that other thread, lol).

    Hello,
    Why do you care what your ISP supports?
    How does it relate to your comp?

    It is one of those powered by norton things. It is offering norton inside their own security center and automated registration is used so i can't input a code in the 2008 installation to upgrade.

    Oh, ok. I had a similar deal last year when I got satellite internet. My ISP was offering a "Security Center" which was a rebranded F-Secure 2006 AV. I couldn't upgrade to '07 for the same reason.
