"Norton or McAfee software will not work with XP Pro x64 Edition." "Users of the latest 64-bit version of Microsoft's Windows XP Professional x64 Edition operating system will not have the option to install Norton or McAfee antivirus software, vnunet.com can reveal."
by Tom Sanders in California, vnunet.com 28 Apr 2005 "Users trying to install the Norton Internet Security 2005 security suite for consumers on the 64-bit version of Windows see an error message stating that the product can not be installed. They are referred to a web page which states: "Symantec currently does not sell any consumer products that are certified to be compatible with 64-bit processors and operating systems. A similar error message pops up when trying to install McAfee security products." "The lack of protection for x64 Windows is not the only reason why consumers should put off switching. Hardware vendors have to develop new drivers for the system and there is currently only a limited number of drivers bundled with the software."
The only easy day was yesterday.
