Just thought I'd share something. When I ran Update, it returned a message that it failed to deliver/find an update. 'More info' gave me an error code and 'contact Help'. Which I did - on-line.
It took 90 minutes to resolve - my broadband is slow (< 1 mb) but it was worth the wait! The technician installed NIS10, after having used the Norton Removal Tool and also having removed 'leftovers' from the registry.
Not something I'd try but facinating to watch!
Well done Pratish from Norton's Help desk.

So if you have similar problems, don't panic/get mad - as I initially did!! Have a great day

and now my PC seems to be running faster than ever before! Could this be linked to the NIS change?
