SP2 and Norton.

Hello,

Can any body tell me if SP2 and Norton antivirus be running at the same time?  Also is there a fast download of SP2 for dialup?  If there is not I will just wait on my SP2 CD in the mail. Also I am  setting up a Zonenet 4 port switching router. Is this a good idea for added security along with the Norton Antivirus?  Am I going to bog down and not be able to get anyhing in or out?  
I would apprecaite any and all answers to my question.

Sincerely,

Compucharley

You need to 've the lates datfiels and updates with you if you want to update to sp2,Check
http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/sp2/faq.html ( norton web site info abt norton and sp2)

link from microsoft concerning windows xp knaown problems with other applna
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sp2/sp2_whattoknow.mspx
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=884130&product=windowsxpsp2.

if you are unable to download it from microsoft site , i'd recommend waiting for the cd to arrive
You could also try dwnldn from http://www.softpedia.com/public/cat/13/9/13-9-177.shtml.

Sorry dont use Zonenet 4 port switching router so am not much aware of it. But might be a case of overkill with norton
,sp2 and all.

Yes they can.  I run both myself on numerous PC's and there are no problems.  If you were running the Corporate Anti-Virus, Symantec does have an patch for that, but as of right now, there is nothign special for SP2.

When SP2 First came out, It did cause Windows Installer issues, but after applying all the patches and updates, it has settled down and works fine now.

I am currently running Norton Internet security with xp pro. sp2, with no problems at all. With the aggressive mal/adware, viruses and all that is out there nowadays, I don't think a person can be to safe, just my opion others may disagree.

Would go like this..


WINDOWS XP SP2....

I'd uninstall pricey Norton and get myself AVG antivirus free edition and to top it up , a Pint of Kerio firewall free edition..
