Norton Internet Security 2007 - With Vista Compatability Patch - No Need to Remove & Reinstall?
Hi,

I'm currently running Norton IS 2007 on Windows XP MCE - I've been told that
my express upgrade Vista disk has been shipped and expect it to arrive in a
few weeeks time.

Anyway, as part of the preparation I downloaded and installed the Norton
compatibility patch for Vista yesterday - it installed easily and Upgrade
Advisor no longer reports a problem with it. When my upgrade disk arrives -
does this mean its OK to leave Norton in place during the install (I'll
initially try an upgrade rather than clean install).

Normally I would remove Norton first and reinstall it after Vista - but I'm
hoping to save the time needed to do that.

Any thoughts. Neither Norton or MS have indicated that I should remove it.

Check to see if a file oscheck.exe runs at startup in XP.

This file is used by Norton to detect if the OS has been upgraded to
Vista.

If the file is there then Norton will automatically upgrade itself to
the Vista version.

Thanks for that - yes it runs during start-up so I'm all set.

Bob,

Re: Norton Internet Security 2007 - With Vista Compatability Patch
well, there is a patch, and I have it. I simply asked in a live chat via the
norton support page. they sent the link, and I downloaded it. it is actually
not even a patch, its a new version. you have to completely uninstall your
old norton software before you can install it. your old registration number
works with the new version.
