Is it possible to run just the Norton antivirus, with a Norton Internet Security install CD?  We found that NIS when active was blocking something from the Linksys router.  We figured that having the NIS software firewall in addition to the hardware firewall was overkill anyway.   I experimented with de-activating the software-firewall portion, but no go.  It won't let me install just NAV either.   Did I waste the purchase of NIS?  I'm thinking I should just purchase NAV and move forward.  We don't have a web site or anything like that, just email and web.  Any comments or suggestions greatly appreciated.

In the setup, there should be an advanced option that lets you install components per application.  First, I would uninstall everything, and then try installing again with custom/advanced options.  It may be a little hidden, but you SHOULD be able to do it, at least you are with Norton Utilities.

I forgot to mention that I'm using XP by the way.
custom/advanced options did not make available an option to _not_ install NIS.  The only option available was to not install antivirus.  Unless it is very well hidden, I don't see how it could be done.
