    Yup. I know what I'm doing - but still wouldn't fiddle unless I absolutely had to!

    I have no qualms at all about delving in there.....

    Yes, they could, and if you're sharing video, music and porn from dodgy Russian sites then the risk is pretty real. Otherwise, if the machine isn't connected both the risk and the potential outcomes are negligable - I mean, what's going to happen, even if a Trojan gets aboard?

    I've had problems with Norton interacting with Adobe Lightroom - the processor was running flat out on the computer unless I terminated the resident Lightroom process that watches for when I attach a memory card to move photos on to my PC.

    As my Norton subscription was nearly up, I ditched it and installed Avast! anti-virus software, which is free, and, I find, better than AVG.

    Similar to a comment on the link that Bettina posted. That person had problems when Norton clashed with Picassa monitoring software.

    Lightroom, that's another possibility. How did you terminate/disable it?!

    There was a little icon in the tray bottom-right of the screen - I just right-clicked on it and took the 'exit' option.

    There's also an option in Lightroom's options dialog that asks whether to load it at startup. It seems that disabling it doesn't always work and you might need to do it twice. There are some threads on Adobe's Lightroom user forums regarding this. HTH.

    Installed it this morning. Wouldn't say I'm flying now but I'm running AOL plus PSCS2 now and the system tells me im 95% idle. Well, of course I am. ;) I'll try to keep this monitored. Thanks for all your help. :)

    Clicking on Nicks link the first time it didn't work. So I right-clicked on it and opened in a new window and it worked.
