    The Norton topic has been discussed on pretty much all the boards and lately it seems a bit quite around that topic. I was wondering if there are any new developments regarding Norton's ad blocking, the negotiation CJ and Norton have/had regarding this matter and any new developments in general.

    I am also curious t know if any merchants saw a considerable decline in affiliate/strategic partner sales since Norton introduced the ad blocker product to the market (September, believe).

    Thanks for the feedback,

    Hi Claudia,

    I just posted an update on my forum about this.
    See more info here: http://abw.infopop.cc/6/ubb.x?a=tpc&...585#3616084585

    See this March 1 2004 Symantec press release stating that “Symantec Security Software Ships on Nine of Top 10 Notebook Computers Worldwide.” “…According to research firm IDC, notebooks are the fastest growing PC market segment, and sales of notebooks have now surpassed those of desktops…”

    I have updated my Norton page with every article and possible solution I can find including our friend Ray from Designerwiz's new software.

    Todd from CJ has said they have a solution coming 2nd qtr. (I believe that's the timeframe he mentioned.)

    A little too late in my opinion. How much are we losing out everyday due to this?

    Thanks for the update Linda. I too was wondering where this had got to.

    Is there any chance of a new forum subtopic area for Ad and Link blocking on ABW ?

    My sales have been dropping off lately and I wonder if Norton is the reason.

    Worse still my second best revenue stream, up till a week or so ago was a Norton competitor !

    Sales for it used to surge every time there was a new virus/worm scare, but this time after the latest virus/worm scare it actually dropped.
