Conflict between Norton Antivirus And SP2

I have norton antivirus 2003, and it happens to be conflicting with the latest SP2.

Symantec has fixed this problem, but you can only get it via liveupdate and it seems to be enabled only for the 2004 versions. Another low tactic of the growing arrogance of Symantec to get users to upgrade.

Right now I'm trying to get hold of the wmi file, which users on forums have claimed it works for 2003 and 2002 versions.

Does anyone know where I can get a manual download of this file?.
I know I can get it from here, but the file comes out corrupted. Although it could be my pc, as everyone is reporting success with the download

I'm having the same problem with my norton 2003, looks like microsoft and symantec conspired on this one. Whatever the case, I need that patch,without having to upgrade to 2004.

I hope they solve this one, because all our Norton AV licenses are valid until December 2004. If they do not provide a patch for NAV 2003, then it is adios NAV.

AVG is not free for corporate use.

I downloaded the patch from the link and NSW is working find
 
Before your Norton AV or NSW live update expired if you need to format your hard drive and re-install your OS do-it and fresh install of Norton will give you an other free year of live update
