Wireless issues with Vista
I have a Sony Vaio laptop which runs Vista and I have been having problems
with my wireless networking.

The connection keeps going on and off. It does reconnect soon enough but it
makes browsing a big problem. When I look into my network and sharing screen,
it shows the connection getting severed, I get a message saying "it will take
a few minutes to switch to home profile" and then it reconnects.

The other point of note is that the problem is a new one. I have had the
laptop for 3 months now and this problem has surfaced only in the past month
seemingly after installing Norton internet Security 2008. I have now
completely uninstalled the Norton package but the problem persists.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Wireless issues with Vista
You only think you have completely uninstalled Norton.
Go to your registry and delete all references to Symantec.
Be sure to backup your registry first.
