Some information of interest

Vista reported that shut down was being delayed by Norton 360 taking 52 seconds to close.

I contacted Symantec Support, they said "problem with earlier versions of Internet Explorer, load IE7"

I contacted them again and asked if Mozilla Firefox (which I use) was supported by Norton. The reply "No, use IE7 if you want Norton protection"

So it looks like Hobson's choice, back to using IE7 for me.

Hmmm... I guess it just goes to show, sometimes it's good to read the instructions. Bye bye Firefox.

Mind you, in relation to the slow shut down, Norton advised using nothing less than IE7 (rather than IE6), maybe it's a Vista thing?

As a matter of interest, are you saying you prefer IE to Firefox? I'd be curious to know why.

What I mean is I recommend installing IE7 over using IE6. I don't have any preference between IE7 or Firefox. I have both installed, but I use IE7 most of the time.

As for slow shutdown, this is something a lot of people complain on Windows Vista and one of the things rumoured to be fixed in upcoming releases/service packs/hotfixes...
