  1. CS Fire monitor is better http://www.croftssoftware.com /s for a silent install
  2. CS Fire Monitor is one that I use that doesnt need anything.
  3. Well thats the problem I had, only with the 8.3 format. havent had it since Also what is the code fix for? cause that isnt in the 8.3 format ;Symantec Antivirus System Tray Fix [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "vptray"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Symantec AntiVirus\\VPTray.exe\"" Mine is in the 8.3 format and no problem. You can find more on nortons website. they even tell you about the 8.3 format and why not to disable it. this is the tweak that will do it and mess it up. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem] "NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation"=dword:00000001 should be "NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation"=dword:00000000 for it to work right. check your reg and see what it is set to.
  4. I made this little program cause I would have the error pop up when I would install multiple machines and would get the network error that the computer name is already on the network. Common problem for a netowrk admin. Well with this app there are over 1000 computer names in it, and the program can run with the /silent command, or you can run it like normal and put or choose a computer name to set. After the name is changed the program will close. Of course a reboot is needed afterwards. Here what to do with it, have it run with the /silent command when you first boot into xp with a batch file. then at the end of the batch file when everything else is done just do the restart command to auto restart the system. with this command to restart, no programs need, part of xp start SHUTDOWN.exe -r -t 01 Now this program was made in VB6. no extra files are needed and I have included the soruce code so if you know how to program with VB6 you can change anything you need for it to work for you. Now I normaly have .net framework installing first hand and this running last, plus the stock vb runtime files come with xp. So everything should run fine. I also have some other small apps I wrote to help things along. I may post those also. ChangeComputerName.zip
  5. I also tried that but the immune updates dont take. in fact it didnt take at all. I stooped doing it and just update afterwords since spybot has command line options.
  6. Quote: I get a folder popping up called C:\PROGRA~1\Symantec, every time I boot into Windows. I had this problem before and also I couldnt even install norton 2003 or 2004. Here is the reason why. While going through the forum I found a reg tweak to speed up the partition. one of the tweaks was to disable the 8.3 naming. BIG MISTAKE! It is cause of this norton 2003 and so on kept giving me a error of the program being modified and on SAV the folder kept opening, anf the systray icon wouldnt show cause the path was in a 8.3 format. (C:\PROGRA~1\Symantec) I undid the tweak and no more probelm. Excpet I had to reinstall XP.
  7. I looked over this thread, and I am sorry to ask but any idea how much longer till the next release is ready? I have a ton of my client machines to install xp on and having this will save me a load of work! Any thing I can do to help just ask.
  8. @mazin I install live update seperetly cause I have tried all things in this thread but I still get the error message after install when I try to slipstream it into SAV. It is really no big deal to install it after SAV it takes only a few secounds and its done. I will diffently look into this utilitie on settings for SAV. Sounds great from what I have read. Thanks! Oh by the way mazin I have read a many of your posts and help for people. Thank a many from me. I am sure you dont here it enough. But from as many post as I have seen from you, you must not have much of a life LMAO jk Thanks guys.
  9. because thats with norton. Sav doesnt have the files in a exe, they are all extracted. You well see that eairler in this thread. Since the new liveupdate has new and different files sav doesnt install the new liveupdate correctly. Which is no big deal just install live update afterwards, real easy. Look here is my batch file that does it ECHO Installing Symantec Antivirus Corporate v9.0.0.1400 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %CDROM%\Software\AntiVirus\setup.msi /qb REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS RUNLIVEUPDATE=0 ECHO. ECHO Installing Symantec LiveUpdate 2.5 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %CDROM%\Software\lusetup.exe /q ECHO. ECHO Setting LiveUpdate Schedule ECHO Please wait... REGEDIT /S %CDROM%\Software\SetAntivirusUpdateSchedule.reg ECHO.
  10. Ok I did a test install on VPC, I install the reg settings after Sav 9 and liveupdate 2.5 is installed. After which It reboots and I checked and it seem to work just right at setting the schedule. Thanks for the help!
  11. this may work for setting the schedule. but some of these keys shouldnt be needed as it may cause a problem. so I will leave 2 of the keys out and let setup take care of it (Created & LastStart). instead I will only set these keys after install Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\PatternManager\Schedule] "SkipEvent"=dword:00000000 "RandomizeDayOfWeek"=dword:00000006 "MinOfDay"=dword:000002df "MissedEventEnabled"=dword:00000001 "TimeWindowMonthly"=dword:0000000b "Type"=dword:00000001 "DayOfWeek"=dword:00000000 "TimeWindowWeekly"=dword:00000003 "TimeWindowDaily"=dword:00000001 "RandomizeDayRange"=dword:0000012c "RandomizeWeekStart"=dword:00000004 "RandomizeWeekEnd"=dword:00000006 "RandomizeMinOfDay"=dword:00000031 "Enabled"=dword:00000001 "DayOfMonth"=dword:00000000 "RandomizeDayEnabled"=dword:00000001 "RandomizeWeekEnabled"=dword:00000000 "RandomizeMonthEnabled"=dword:00000000 "RandomizationGenerate"=dword:00000000 "RandomizedMinOfDay"=dword:00000313 "RandomizedDayOfWeek"=dword:00000000 "RandomizedDayOfMonth"=dword:00000000 This is taken from my config. Also here is a screenshot of my setup. I will use VPC npw and test to see if it works.
  12. Its the automatic live update that I like. I have done soime performance test between norton and sav to. sav is a straight to the point antivirus while norton tends to be a little bloated. Sav was designed to take as little from the machine as possible since it has many more task to do thinking it is on a network and a work enviorment. Sav wouldnt sell if it bogged down the system. From my test the system performs faster with sav on it and finds more viruses than norton. Now for my next question if anyone can help me is I would like to try to find a way to auto set the auto live update options after install. The default is friday at 8. I like it daily at noon within 300 mins. Sav tends to get updated more offten if they have updates. Even says so on there site. there SAV products come first over norton on virus def releases.
  13. I am the same and I agree. For my program I right on my website I will be adding more laguages to them. I plan on simply having it translate over. You would think a major company would do the same. Symantec just recently won a 23 million dollar law suit against a local company here who was selling illegel copies of norton. They sued them and won. So I know they got money! Bt I am sure they have there reasons. I for one would like to know why sav can not be updated through live update like norton. sav is far better than norton on performance.
  14. My first thread and I get yelled at LOL. Can a admin put this in there?
  15. Here is the command line switch for CS Fire Monitor www.croftssoftware.com CSFireMonitorSetup.exe /s
  16. i have the version. no problem slipstreaming it. Also It works fine with XP sp2. I just like to keep things as up to date as possible. Since I a programmer this is kind of a way of life for me to update verything LOL. I have also made some tools for the xp cd such as change computer name, setwallpaper and change cd key and such. Perhaps I will make a new thread in the right forum here and put what I have to help others. After all if it wasnt for people helping like this I would have never made my cd so perfect. I dont have to do a single thing on it all my apps install and the ones that dont fit auto install acroos my network. Thanks again. I will keep checking this thread for info on updates to sav 9. Thanks guys.
  17. The reason why I ask about the update is because of this http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/enterpris..._9.0/files.html Patch: Symantec AntiVirus 9.0.1 Maintenance Patch 1 Release Date: August 25, 2004 File: SAV_9.0.1_MR1-MP1_AllWin_EN.zip (3,034,112 bytes) Description: Includes fixes for several log forwarding issues. Customers who have installed Symantec AntiVirus 9.0.1 MR1 ( are encouraged to download this. This is for Unlicensed installations of SAV 9.0.1. Business Pack customers will be able to download a separate patch later. But I cant get it to slipstream.
  18. From what I have found on there website sav 9 is up to version Does anybody know if this is worth updating to?
