Repeatable hang/crash in Norton Family - Suspected concurrency issue
I have (had) Norton Family installed on my WinXP desktop, and was getting a repeatable crash or hang in the service. This can be demonstrated by downloading Firefox, and setting about 30 tabs in the home page set. When these pages attempt to be opened all at once, it will frequently (maybe 3 times out of 4) cause a hang or crash in the Norton Family service, resulting in loss of internet connectivity. If the service actually crashes, you can restart it and resume, but otherwise it requires a reboot. This could be either a concurrency problem (I have a Core2Duo processor) or possiby some sort of unusual memory issue related to having so many internet threads in use simultaniously. Please let me know if you're able to reproduce this. If you can't I will provide you with additional details.
