Inertnet Security

I've spent most of the weekend trying to undo the damage wrought to my PC by trying to install a demo version of Norton Internet Security that came with my Linksys router. Because of an apparent licensing conflict with my existing Norton SystemWorks software, I can't install Internet Security.

However, the installation shield did throw a bunch of common files into my shared folder that I couldn't delete. When I tried to get rid of them manually, Windows quit running. After reinstalling Windows, all of my old settings were gone and I still couldn't get online. I guess that's what they mean by "Internet Security."
