Known Bugs

For those of you about to receive Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition 9.0, there's a "known bug" with it. In short, it doesn't work with the beta of Windows XP Service Pack 2, because Auto-Protect fails to load. I called Symantec's support line (1-800-927-4017) and they confirmed that this is something they know about, but they currently have no workarounds for the problem, and they don't know if it's going to be something they fix, or something Microsoft fixes in the final version of the Service Pack. This means that we're not going to be distributing the new version to the incoming students at Orientation, as any new computers they purchase prior to starting the fall semester may include Service Pack 2, causing the software not to work. Version 8.1 continues to work fine on the Service Pack 2 beta, it just doesn't have some of the nice new features of 9.0, such as spyware scanning.
