    Ok, I've read a number of... ahem... comments here about Norton. I still
    want to give it a try, I have it, what the heck. I installed Norton
    AntiVirus 2007.

    Now, my systray has a dialog whenever I log in that says "The Security
    Center serivce is turned off". When I click on it, it has a button for
    turning it on, but it won't start. (This is a clean Vista install, there is
    nothing added to it except Firefox and Norton AV 2007).

    Anyway, I did read from a Vista window that firewalls conflict with each
    other and only one should be used. I guess Norton AV 2007 is including a
    firewall now? So I'm not surprised that it isn't playing nicely with Vista
    Security Center and turned it off.

    How can I get Vista to recognize NAV2007 and thus not complain about not
    having any firewall protection?

    hi there
    -- i'm running nav 2007 aswell and not having any problems at all .All i
    can suggest is to make sure windows fire wall is turned of you can do this in
    the security center or in ''services'' although when i installed nav2007 it
    automaticaly turned windows fw off possibly because my machine came with a 60
    day trial pre installed .It must also be said that nav2007 is the best norton
    to date , it does work despite what you might read elsewere usually it just
    sits in the background doing what it's told i have no complaints .
