I have been running Norton Internet Security 2010 on a small workgroup of Windows XP computers.
The computers are running Medical Software, where it needs to connect to the server using a UNC path:
The software company will not support mapped drives, so I can not test if that fixes the issue.
The issue is that when I open the software that is installed on the local machine, it goes to the UNC path for data and to load some extra modules, but the software is taking 2 mins + to open.
I suspected firewall, but when I disabled it, the issue continued to happen. When I disabled AutoProtect on the antivirus, the issue went away.
I have tried added the locally installed program to the AutoProtect Exclusions, but am unable to also add the UNC path (Norton restrict this)
Please someone help.
