caz963: (doctor donna wtf)
A few months back, I bought a copy of Windows 7 to install on my PC or my laptop. My PC is running Vista already (and I've not had any problems with it) but the laptop only runs XP - it was Vista originally, but I was unable to put Vista back on when I had to wipe the HD because of a virus a year or so back.

But I decided to put Windows 7 on the PC, because I'm coasting this laptop through until I can afford a new one - it's 4 or maybe 5 years old now and gets a lot of use, and a new one will come with Windows 7 already, so...

Anyway, all was going well - I'd backed everything up, the installation went without a hitch... until I started to put my programs back on. First up was Norton AntiVirus... which caused the PC to crash. I tried again - another crash.

When I spoke to my Dad, he'd had the same problem. WTF? It's the latest version of Norton and according to the compatility check I did before I installed Windows 7, it's fully compatible.

Fortunately, because this happened to my Dad, he had to buy a new anti-virus program and it covers 3 users, so he's letting me have a copy of his, but if it wasn't for that, I'd have to shell out for another program when the one I've got has still got about 8 months on the license. I'll be having a moan at Norton - although I doubt I'll get anywhere.
