I am testing ZA, planning to do away with Norton/Symantec and go with all ZA protection.

The problem is that the day after I installed the trial version (Pro), Word, Excel, and PowerPoint stopped working.

I don't think I permanently blocked anything. I either allowed or might have blocked something once, but I am pretty certain I did not check the Remember action box and block anything. Another issue is that in many cases there was not a Remember box, so I had to keep clicking allow over and over....

I uninstalled ZA. Now MS Office apps all work fine.

Any idea what might have caused this? A common bozo move I might have made?

I have had it with Symantec, but at least my other programs run.

Any all input welcome.
