From: Ann Barcomb Date: 09:15 on 29 Aug 2003 Subject: Software that won't take no for an answer I don't know whether to blame Windows or the software in question, since I only use Windows at work, and then only for dealing with a few things that I can't do on the development machine. When the machine is booted, before I can log on, the following box appears: Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition Symantec AntiVirus Realtime Protection failed to load. (OK) I click OK. It beeps, and the window remains. I click OK. It beeps, and the window remains. I click OK and I am now allowed to log on. After I have logged on, a new installer window pops up for the same program (note that I do not even have access to install the program). I click the cancel button. The window is replaced with one which says 'Preparing to install', but this quickly vanishes and is replaced with the installer window again. I cancel it. The result is the same. I cancel it for the third time, and it goes away. For the remainder of the day, I can just expect yellow pop-ups telling me the software isn't installed. Does this constitute a sighting of an Acme::Snark in production code?
