See, that's where the Y chromosome gene, the one that makes it impossible to
ask directions, comes in handy.  That gene allows you to plow ahead without
reading the manual or asking tech support.  Much less stress, and you may
even go in the right direction B^)

Owning a GPS is never having to ask directions!

Hi there, you old reprobate!!  See you're still hanging around from time
to time.  Behaving yourself??  How unlike you.....lol.

I do have an old guy who wouldn't know how to operate a GPS.....lol.  We
are heading to Europe for a holiday and I am not about to let him drive.
(grounds for divorce).  Daughter is coming too and she can carry the
luggage, while I use my *built in compass*, grin.  As long as the sun is
out, I am never lost.

Cheers.....Figgs (and my Rogers address has changed due to spam)



Re: Firewalls?

I think if my other half had a GPS he would still get lost <g> you tell
him which way to go and he still goes the wrong way <g>

EXactly my point..... and who is it that never wants to ask for directions?
This guarantees it for them......

OK, so I have another question since you're all being patient with me.....
my present NAV was the 60 day trial that came with my computer (when I had
to reformat thanks to McAfee and my lack of expertise) and it runs out May
6, ... Is it OK to download the Norton AntiVirus 2007 disk I just bought, on
top of what I keep getting reminders from Norton every time I run it, that
it is time to renew, or do I have to remove every trace of Norton in my
computer before I download the new NAV 2007 disk?  thanks again.... I
checked the Internet and all I came up with were mixed signals.... some said
it's OK and other said it wasn't and then there was another group that said
they couldn't remove it...

Hi Vi.....

You are a bear for punishment, eh?  If the Norton 2007 is still
unopened, why not return it and use one of the free ones, or for that
matter, a better one.

As for should you install it over Norton 2005??  NO!!  Besides it being
a matter of habit with me, I think it is usually best to uninstall most
of the older programs and install the new one by itself.  There is a
tool on the Symantec site which is supposed to remove all traces of
Norton.  Aha...found it...... http://snipurl.com/1gmjp (huge, long url,
so shortened it)

But perhaps it is best that one of the gurus on here step in and either
*second* my suggestions or perhaps give their own.

Cheers......Heather

Hi Heather,  I hear you but as I said, I've really had good experiences so
far (, I probably just gave it the kiss of death by saying that) with NAV in
the past.... so, having said that, I'll try it out and if NAV 2007 disk
doesn't do the job as well as the one that came with my PC, then I'll remove
it and go for one of the other ones that have been suggested.... Thanks for
that website by the way.... I'll hold onto it in case I can't remove the
"old stuff"... thanks again.......
.... Vi



Re: Firewalls?

Please note that this tool says it is for removing a *failed
installation or a damaged Norton product*.

My understanding was that even tho you remove Norton via Add/Remove
Programs, there is still quite a bit left on the computer.  You can also
use Search to find Symantec or Norton and/or use a registry cleaner, but
I am not advising that.

It's quite possible that NAV 2007 will offer to uninstall the previous
version for you, but I would recommend you keep the uninstall separate from
the new install.  Norton products are notorious for not uninstalling
cleanly, and you don't want a failed uninstall to then trash your new NAV
install.  If the uninstall fails there's a file you can download from the
Symantec site that should clean it up.

 From all the moaning and groaning, it sounds like a good idea to run
that extra uninstall clean up program just to avoid the hassle.

That's what I'm gong to do when the expiration comes up in May..... It does
sound like the safer thing to do (if there is such a thing as "safe" in the
PC world..  Thank you....
