Stupid programmers of the day: Symantec's Norton Anti-Virus
Last month I complained about the stupidity regarding The Sims 2 save folders
. Well the kids at Symantec have made an even more ridiculous programming desicion.
If you move the product's Start Menu folder to somewhere other than the root Programs folder, it chokes and gives you the message, "Norton AntiVirus 2005 doesn't support the Repair feature. Please uninstall and reinstall." Even worse, the message pops up every time you open an Office document.
You've gotta be kidding me! Symantec wants to dictate the way I structure my start menu? I don't know about you, but I like to categorize stuff and organize it does I don't have a list of 50 different program groups.
Unbelievable. I think I'm going to write them and tell them I want my money back. I'll buy someone else's product. Who allows this kind of thing to make it to retail?
