    LOL Gman, most and by a probably high probability yes. But running it now and no problem, no problems in W7, running for years. No problems in XP. Like I said I may live to regret it, but not yet!
    Thanks Gman the man!

    lol you have threads about sfc, threads about shutdown hangs amongst a few other things. Seems there really are problems but if you like Norton/Symantec so much that you can live with those issues...then more power to ya.

    Haven't had the sfc problems any more. The idiosyncracies are like the shutdown haven't occurred since I stopped trying to get W8 to burn a WinPE rescue disk, which required WAIK download and install as well as IIRC .NET framework 2. Another thing I like about W8 is that running the maintenance and the SFC and rebooting, stopped that problem. These strange things are easy to point to Norton as the cause and I can not refute your claims about the weirdness it can cause. But I am happy with it on Window 7 and unless it really bites me, I will probably keep it on W8. Having paid for it.
    Do really think the oddities of defrag are caused by NIS with enough knowledgeable certainty to automatically remove it? Or is this just your first suspect? When I get the time to learn Windows Defender and Windows Firewall, I may give them a try. You seem so sincerely adamant about it. Again W8 is for playing.
    If you don't mind, while on the subject it seems that Windows Defender is now considered better than the latest MSE, is this correct?

    Hi,

    When you download and install W8 straight from MS's download site NIS is on the list of incompatible sw IIRC.
    There are other possibilities such as earlier version of Diskeeper.
    The list is long but I encountered the same problem as you did and yes, if you insist and are patient enough chances are W8 will fix it.

    Cheers,

    Howdy fdegrove,
    That is news to me and thanks. I am used to the Norton AV portion of NIS. Never used whatever else NIS provides. But this is on a play computer for know and maybe I will change to the built in stuff just as a learning experience. There are a lot of people that strongly disagree, in W7 and W8 about my choice of Norton. We'll see what we shall see. Take care
