I've recently installed SP 2 on WinXP Pro. I have Symantec Anti Virus Corp.edition version 188.8.131.525 installed. I'm almost positive this is 2004, but it doesn't say it anywhere on the program. I'm now getting the Red Shield in the task tray, for Windows Security Center. The link below to Symantec's website states that this will remain until I run live update. I've ran it and still the red shield remains. Any ideas? This is compnay wide.
Q: How will installing Service Pack 2 affect the Symantec products I already have installed?
A: This varies based on the Symantec products that you own:
Installing Service Pack 2 will not affect Norton AntiVirus. The Windows Security Center, which is a component of Windows XP Service Pack 2, will be aware that you have Norton AntiVirus installed, but it will not be able to determine its working status due to Symantec's tamper-protection technology.
Symantec has released an update which adds compatibility to the Windows Security Center so that it may report the status of your Symantec security software. This update is included in Norton AntiVirus 2005, and is available by LiveUpdate for Norton AntiVirus 2004. The update will install on Windows XP, but will not take effect unless you have the Windows Security Center installed.
