I have recently purchased and installed Norton Internet Security 2004. I was previously using Zone Alarm but had no anti-virus software and thought it was time I got better protected, so thought that a combined package would cause me less administrative hassle. I am running Windows 98.
I have disabled the Automatic Live Update but something in the programs that it sets running on my PC keeps trying to dial out to the internet. No matter how many times I hit "Cancel" on the dial-up connecion box, it keeps coming back up. Eventually I let it connect but I couldn't see where it was trying to get to. After downloading about 200-300k over the connection, it stopped and I could disconnect without it complaining. I have had to do this about 2-3 times over the past couple of days. And no, this is not coming from any spyware - I have Ad-Aware & Spy Bot and neither found anything to complain about. I think it may be coming from some component called ccApp which is run on startup.
I have disabled everything I can find in the configuration options that is called "Automatic" and removed the (disabled) Live Update task from the scheduler.
Since installing the product, I seem to be constantly at its demand and it's taking over my life and my PC. I thought it was supposed to make my life easier?
Any advice gratefully received.
