    Since it took me more than 5 minutes to find it, I figured I'd post the links.

    Interesting note is the fact that after 120 days you will HAVE to install it :hs:

    Well, if you're talking about the fact that after 120 days it's gay, then yeah. But the more I researched I've come to the conclusion that (hopefully) after 120 days it's automatically installed during Automatic Updates - meaning that manual control won't require you to install it.

    Have you seen the list of applications that it has issues with? I've got Symantec Corporate 8.1 on my home computer and XP is having issues with shutting it down properly on restart/shutdown calls.
