I updaterd NIS a few days ago and since the update my NIS has been a bit tempormental ......... Sometimes wen I boot up it says that it cant do any thing as I'm not the Supervisor ????? Wich only happens sometimes ?????

It also has the option to load on startup and this box is checked....but it never does ?????? This is all the time......

PLZ help as I like this program...

If any one knows of a proggie that does the same thing and has the same facilities that Nortons do then I'd be open to sugestions....

Oh by the way ...I have NAV 2033 pro installed as well but it wasnt installed off the NIS disk (different disk) ...IT WORKS FINE ????

Thanx for any assistance as I have tryed almost everythuing from reinstalling to using a program called "The Cleaner"

do you have more than one account on the PC? If so, you MUST use the account you used to install the software to configure it.

I'd recommend using that same account to update it.

The next pic is of the system config utility...there might be something there that can help....

Put all your screenshots into a ZIP file and attach that :)

Shall try to figure out why NIS wont load at startup for you, get back into NIS and check all your settings, you may need to re-configure some of the application settings.

The default administrator account is displayed on the welcome screen in safe mode, when you reboot it will be hidden again.

On the last screenshot check the "dont show" box and click OK.

Then run msconfig again and take a screenshot of the startup tab, something may now be disabled from starting which is shy NIS wont load.

Before you do the above check if NIS is set to load in the first place. Just in case the setting was lost when we did setp one and removed the file from above.

Im guessing its the patch issue but check the settings first.

It still doesn't load on startup...even though the option is to do it????
My computer is a bit faster though????? I deleted the files in that folder and tried to do a live update and it still tells me I'm up to date with them....shouldn't it tell me I have some updates to d/l ???

I have system mechanic installed if you need info from it??

Q: It still doesn't load on startup...even though the option is to do it????

A: Yes its a problem with the faulty patch, it will be fixed im sure.

Q: My computer is a bit faster though?????

A: It will be! NIS likes a fair amount of resources so it will run faster without it.

Q: I deleted the files in that folder and tried to do a live update and it still tells me I'm up to date with them....shouldn't it tell me I have some updates to d/l ???

A: When a fix is published then yes, once that occurs it will fix itself.

Keep your eye on the article "Norton Internet Security 2003 does not load on reboot after applying the 6.04 patch via LiveUpdate"

link somewhere above. A fix will be mentioned there when its out.

If you cant wait you can remove NIS and re-install it :)
