NOF seems to block an application on PC
Is that crazy or true?
Okay have you ever heard of the website/program called "Raptr"?? Basically Raptr is an application when launched can keep track of your gaming playing time, it then will compare against your friends' profile as well. Basically the more you play a specific game, the more you can also earn promotional discounts. For instance. (keep in mind this is purely an example, not a legit situation). 1hr of Diablo 3 grants you nothing, however 6hrs of gameplay could grant you a 20% off coupon for a mouse courtesy of Raptr.com Or another example (again example). A certain # of hours of gameplay grants you a beta access code to test out a new game thats about to be released. So Raptr.com is about keeping your gameplay stats, comparing against friends, and also is cross platform your XBox, Playstation Network and Steam Accounts all go hand in hand using a client that also allows you to talk as well to each other.
Moving on.....when I launch the Raptr.exe application the program logs me into the various areas I have registered. For example if I chose to add my PSN account it will log me in and see what friends I have online, if I chose to add my Steam acct, it will log me into their service and see what friends are playing. But most importantly it will log me into the Raptr account/service in order to keep track of my gametime and such.
However one thing I noticed is that by having Norton Safety Minder, aka Norton Online Family, my Raptr account will not log in, it says "connection error" now i know for fact it has to do with NOF because down near my clock is the NOF icon, I disabled NOF and then launched the Raptr application and voila, it connected within a split second. I rebooted PC, NOF was re enabled, I tried launching Raptr app and it wouldnt connect, I immediately disabled NOF and relaunched Raptr app and again within a split second it connected.
Now within the settings I have enabled Ratpr.com to be an 'approved site' to visit, however for some odd reason the NOF application and the Raptr.exe application seems to be in conflict.
I'm going to hit submit/post this, and will test this a couple more times, if there is inconsistency I'll repost but if I dont repost consider that there still is an underlining issue that I dont know how to fix.
