Did you know that if the "Symantec Network Proxy Service" dies (as in the part of Norton that kills ads in web pages and stuff) it'll knock out most of your computer's network comms?

Did you know that Norton is a really, really screwy program series, in general? It does really strange stuff from time to time. It wouldn't let me install it because it swore a battery on my hard drive was too low--so it kept knocking the clock off and nothing else. Very screwy.

It's alright as a firewall and av, but it's a real pain on a development machine. If the firewall is enabled, I can't use Visual Interdev to work on my site on IIS (on the same machine)
