    Not sure if this is true for Corp. but on page I linked above Symantec says that you should install this patch before sp2 or stuff could bork. :p

    My next question would be what if you installed NAV after you installed sp2? Would it still bork?

    I installed the patch after installing SP2. Works without a glitch. [​IMG]

    Yeah but thats Corp. version ... the "everybody else" version won't even be out till the 10th. :(

    -edit- I might just say "F" it and install it and reinstall norton on the 10th if something more then just not showing the new security center whatnot.

    If the old NAV works with SP2, I don't see why an SP2 upgrade would break it!!

    NAV 2003 and 2004 will work fine with SP2, any update is purely cosmetic to allow integration with the security center.

    Thanks for the tip NetRyder. At least for the corp version the update allows Windows to moniter the anti-virus and make sure its up to date. Its not that important of a update but could be useful

    I installed SP2 this morning and it finished like 5mins before work :p Anyhoo NAV isn't seen but I care not as having windows check on my anti-virus I could care less about as it does it on it's own and when it's not I check myself probably 5 times a day due to my up to date disorder. :p

    Ok, for those of you using Norton, there are reports that Symantec has released the updates for SP2 via LiveUpdate. Since I have no way of making sure, it would be great if someone could confirm this.

    So far I havn't see the patch via LiveUpdate (run it myself just in case) also there lame site still just redirects instead of giving you info like they said :(

    -edit- Did some looking around and found there SP2 page but it would be nice if they page they say is going to be redirected actually was. Also if infact this patch did come via LiveUpdate it doesn't fix NAV status in the security status. Perhaps it needs a reboot like everything in windows? ... damn Symantec :mad:

    I've had a look @ the Symantec site under SP2 help and they only seem to mention 2k4 so us 2k3 people I think might be left in the cold. Shame 2k4 sucks more then most virii. :p
