Updates

You say that people with 06 or later are still offered product updates.

Does that mean that 06 has the same detection rates as 09?

Does that mean 06 also has 15 minute updates, like 09? 

     Or are the updates the same as 09, only distrubuted to 06 customers every 4-6 hours or whatever the update time was?

Re: Updates

Is this not the difference between Updates and Upgrades?

Re: Updates

So why are 06 customers still being supported?

So what are the differences between an update and an upgrade? Do you have to upgrade for maxiumium detection?

The New Product will always have better Dection Rates.

And Norton 2006 Products will not have Pulse Updates; it is only Norton 2009 Products that have this Feature.

Re: Updates

Wait. I remeber a mod saying that people using 06 could still upgrade to the latest build of their product...

By Build, does he mean LiveUpdate kind of updates, or versions, such as 07?

Still supported because it is good business practice?

Still supported because the later versions of Norton IS and AV may not support an earlier OS that is still in use -- eg WIN98SE (yes people do still use it!). OS Spec for 2009's is XP and VISTA (probably would work on Windows 2000 since that is NT5.0 while XP is NT5.1 but whether all features would work I do not know -- one would have to check with Norton or suck it and see).

Support in this context, as I understand it, would mean updates to security definitions and also perhaps bug fixes.

Those are updates -- you ae still using the 06 version.

Upgrade would mean that you go to the current version, now 09

So I would say Yes you must upgrade for maximum detection because new malware can use techniques unthought of in earlier years and so the earlier engines could not be modified to detect them. Also upgrade to get current performance improvements.

Re: Updates

So:

Symantec still issues updates and bug fixes for eariler engines. The basic structure of the engine remains the same, however.

However, 06 engines are by nature superseeded by 09 engines in terms of detection/removal and performance. 06<09.

06 engines are still being supported because a large amount of users use 98 and other legacy systems.

And to answer your question, 09 does not work with 2k. No error message. Creates a "NortonInstaller" directory in Program Files.
