Norton Anti-Virus Users Will Have to Patch After WinXP SP2

By Derek Sooman on July 19, 2004, 6:44 AM
Along with the arrival of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (hopefully) next month, and with it a comprehensive security overhaul of Windows XP, Norton Anti-Virus users will have to install a patch.

"To make the new Microsoft system work smoothly with Norton, customers will need to download a Norton update. The company is already bracing for the change, working with its customer support staff and making plans to increase phone support."

After several delays, it now looks like the update is coming in August. Lets hope all is smooth for Norton users.
