Anybody have any experience running Norton Internet Security 2005 on Windows
98 Second Edition. I upgraded from NIS 2004 to NIS 2005. It took about 3
attempts to get NIS properly installed, but after I did, my 5Mbps cable
internet connection dropped dramatically. All processor time appears to be
diverted to Norton's firewall, I can't even move my mouse while opening up
Yahoo. If I disable NIS, every thing runs full speed.

My question is has anybody else had this experience? Is it possible that
NIS still isn't installed correctly? Thanks.

All the reports I have seen indicate that NIS 2005 simply does not work correctly on
Win98SE or any Win9x operating system. The best thing to do is drop it, and if you
insist on using Norton/Symantec software, go back to NIS 2004. I don't recommend
any of their software, but you must make your own choices.
