Run installation wizard 2.2.0 on Vista with Norton Internet Security
List of numbered processes detected (about 12) which wizard claims are using
files it needs to update
These were all related to Norton IS. Perhaps the same will happen with other
security software.

Clicked 'ignore' and everything seems to have installed fine, however the
message will worry most 'ordinary' users. Ideally, these processes should be
ignored  by the wizard (if they can/should be) or the user needs to be told to
close down security software (which he may not know how to do). This doesn't
seem to be required for installation of other applications (though it is
sometimes recommended) and would be very unpopular.

IS -> FL: What do you think, would be the best for the user? I suppose there is
not much we can do to avoid this dialog, because it is generated by the Windows
Installer service.

Windows Vista is end-of-life now
