    On the XP system, I, (when I remember), disable NAV when doing a Windows Update, as twice, (when I forgot), the auto update stopped, and I needed to hack the BIOS to get the system back online.

    That said, I wouldn't buy any other because it does the job.
    Nortons firewall stops windows update operating normally, but all issues are resolved in their knowledge base. Strictly speaking you should disable ANY AV before installing games,service packs and updates etc.

    I have never had bother with my XP and Norton.
    Such is life.

    I like the way they setup NAV 2002 better than NAV2003. Norton rules!
