Recurrance of Computer-crippling bug from last year
I don't believe it. I. Just. Do. Not. Believe. It.
The glitch that came through in a Nortons update about a year ago that crippled many of my main programs (see: here, and here, and here, and here) seems to have been re-included in Nortons latest update.
Subsequent to this update, MS Word, Adobe Reader and Internet Explorer have all been crippled and refuse to run. Quite likely, other programs I haven't tried have also been affected.
Once again, I've had to uninstall the up-to-date Nortons and revert back to an old installer I had for version 18.104.22.168 to get my computer to function in a somewhat stable state once again.
If it weren't for the fact that there are viruses out there, I wouldn't have Nortons on my PC at all. Though I'm starting to wonder if maybe the viruses would do less damage to my PC.
What happened to you, Nortons? You used to be a brand name associated with quality.
