Installed but had to manually install previous version of Norton 360 V5 before I could install, after that I found out that my DVD drive no longer worked.

This could just be a coincidence and that the two things are not linked but after installing the Beta version of Norton it flagged this problem up when I ran a diagnostic report from within Norton. The drive was working correctly just 2 days before the download and install of the Beta.

But to get DVD drive to be recognised by PC and with the help of people in the helproom managed to get it back by altering registry.

As I said the 2 things may not be connected.

Windows 7 64 bit.

Installed fine. Not that I am one, but from a "New Users" point of view the messages during installation might put you off.

I'll explain more ... after installation the GUI (General User interface) says "Explore" why not keep it simple? "You are Protected" and then perhaps "What do you wan't to do next" - "Check for updates" or "Check my current system"

Instead Norton gives you a very complicated Control Panel with no guidance. Yes you can explore if you know this software but I think most new users will be bewildered. IMHO

I think there should be a self activating link to a website which tells the first time user what to do next if anything.
