[13:51] <@spiritflame> did they get a set of royals to do tech support this day


[13:52] > NakoNako: if you could take a look at this, maybe this will make my problem sound a bit clearer.
[13:52] > NakoNako: i am using an older computer with very little ram.
[13:54] > NakoNako: windows 2000 is my OS.
[13:54] > NakoNako: i am trying to permanently get rid of three norton icons.
[13:54] > Rajesh: I understand your concern. I will transfer this session to one of our technicians who will assist you in troubleshooting this issue. This may take me a minute or two. Please be on hold.


[13:54] <// J_Daito //> Please Be on Hold
[13:54] <// J_Daito //> Please?
[13:55] <// J_Daito //> Because if you're not on hold when I get back they'll outsource my job to Belgium
[13:55] <// J_Daito //> And then I'll have to move to Nigeria and get involved in the seedy world of 419 Emails


[13:56] > NakoNako: from my task bar because they are taking up a lot of RAM.
[13:56] > NakoNako: ok thanks.

[13:59] > NakoNako: hi
[13:59] > NakoNako: ok.
[13:59] > NakoNako: i made a screenshot of the problem.
[14:07] > NakoNako: i want to get rid of the three yellow norton icons.
[14:07] > NakoNako: i am using a very old computer and i need to save ram.
[14:07] > Ravendran: Can you please be on hold while I check the information.
[14:08] > NakoNako: ok.
[14:08] > Ravisankar: Hi, thank you for contacting Symantec Live Technical Support. My name is Ravisankar. How may I help you?

[14:10] <GERMATOID> YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A BUGGY PRODUCT WHEN YOUR *TECH SUPPORT LINE* CRASHES PEOPLE! MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!


[14:12] > NakoNako: i have been told there is no way to disable any of the tray icons for norton systemworks 2006 premier.
[14:13] > NakoNako: is this true?
[14:13] > NakoNako: i am trying to get rid of those three icons.
[14:13] > NakoNako: unfortunately i am using an older computer and need to conserve ram.
[14:13] > Ravisankar: I understand that you need to remove the icons of Norton SystemWorks from the task bar. Is that correct ?
[14:15] > NakoNako: yes.
[14:15] > Ravisankar: Can you please be on hold while I refer to the documents. This may take 2-3 minutes.


[14:16] <@SpeedRcrX> O SHI THE DOCUMENTS

[14:17] > Ravisankar: Thank you for staying online.
[14:17] > NakoNako: np
[14:18] > Ravisankar: I am sorry to inform you that it is not possible to perform that steps
[14:18] > NakoNako: and why is that?
[14:18] > Ravisankar: This is because for the protection of your system, the programs are set to run at start up and these icons will appear when the program starts


[14:18] <@SpeedRcrX> for your PROTECTION
[14:18] <GERMATOID> IF YOU UNINSTALL THEM THE TERRORISTS WIN! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
[14:20] <C'est_la_V> X-chan always said Norton was a "System Swine" that's why he uses the free AntiVir program
[14:21] <@SpeedRcrX> "System Hog"


[14:22] > NakoNako: well, i don't see how protecting my system requires most of my ram to be eaten up.
[14:22] > NakoNako: please let someone at symantec know i am extremely disappointed.
[14:22] > NakoNako: that while norton can have 6 programs running in the background,
[14:23] > NakoNako: it feels the need to have these icons there.
[14:23] > Ravisankar: I suggest you to please visit the link provided below and post your feed back:

Becayse it was drawn by them, it's a clip from Family Guy.

Holy prepackaged poop, Batman!
Why is it that that B.B. video looks like it was drawn by the Family Guy animators? (And why is it that even with Flash7 installed, and the volume pulled to the right, I still get no sound with any youtube videos?)

CAVEAT: Norton Systemworks 2004 installed, all icons killed. However I do have to pay for subscriptions ><.
I have found 4 problems on this clunker of mine and fixed 3 of them. The fourth may or may not be fixed depending if it's something that just requires a quick airblast or not.
