Please refer to my experiences in reinstalling NIS 2012 (following the advices here, at least TWICE) in the earlier posts of this thread.
Unless the given link lets you download a new update with the right fix (which you don't really know, I presume), you will probably just end up even angrier and more frustrated like I was, because, when the number of your entries in the firewall hits the mark AGAIN, NIS 2012 will crash AGAIN. Then, you will have to install NIS AGAIN and RE-ENTER each of the 100+ firewall entries MANUALLY. It seems to me that the prevailing logic is: Because not everybody is complaining about this problem with NIS 2012, then your system must be the cause of your problem. You just keep re-installing NIS 2012 until your system gets it right.

Wow! Sounds like a guru of the advanced order would like to teach the sacred mantra to you personally because it is forbidden to be exposed to the public.

Yes, imagine that.
I was mad having to manually input 100+ firewall entries into ONE computer everytime I reinstalled. Now, imagine you having to do the same with SIX computers. And, apparently, there is no explicit guarantee from Symantec that the NIS 2012 you will download and install from the provided link will not show the same problem AGAIN.
I guess they consider our application of the NIS (with 100+ firewall entries) uncommon. And because there are only a handful of us voicing out the problem, we are the exceptional cases. Therefore, we have to keep reinstaling NIS 2012 until we learn our lesson and realize that Oh! The problem does not actually exist! You can also simply choose not to add more entries into the firewall, install NIS 2011 instead, or talk to their guru-of-the-advanced-order in private.
