@ igor...

Well, we can agree to disagree. :) Although it's possible that the problems I experienced had something to do with the fact that 4.7 was installed through the updater. As far as Tomo's case, I have a feeling Norton was, at least, partially the culprit here.

@ alanrf...

Thank you for your kind words. :) I will, for the time being, be happy to stick around and help with the more generic problems.

Best Regards...

I'm quite sure Norton IS the culprit here  :P

I've combed this thread and tried to get Norton un-install info and the version currently on this machine is Norton AV 2002. 
I clicked on all the uninstall threads and even this forums link to the Symenatc site and I get "no support for this discontinued Symantic product"

So should I just run the regular un install via Windows programs or do I need to do more
Thanks
Tomo

First use the add remove programs, as is likely but the number of posts in the forums it may leave elements/registry entries behind you would be advised to check the manual removal information (print it off) and check the various locations to ensure t has been fully removed.
