I doubt he did anything that dumb, besides I don't think you can
reboot, get the browser fired up and hit the site before Norton
activates, since it seems to have a higher priority, i.e. other progs
won't finish loading until it's going. But since it's a part of
SystemWorks, I agree with the bloat. Is their Corporate Antivirus
stand-alone any more efficient?

We have seven computers sharing an internet connection and three more
that are not online at all in the exam rooms, as our Doctor uses a
computerized eye exam program. I have all file sharing off. There are
only two puters that have any sensitive data at all, the others are
used for miscellaneous duties and the one in my office is for lens
research and Halo. :-)
Both units with the sensitive data have CD-RW drives.
I have seen a program somewhere that will allow you to change the
order of loading of your programs, does that work?
