Norton Family blocking Minecraft resources
I have seen several threads here saying that Norton Family causes Minecraft to fail the download of resources, resulting in the game running with no sound.
When I run the game as admin, it loads and runs normally, but not when run as a standard user.
If Norton Family is uninstalled, it will run normally without admin.
(All the game, Norton Family and Java are fresh installs.)
