In Symantec products which require activation, a bug in the activation procedure forced users to enter and reenter the activation codes required for the software to work each time the PC was restarted. The bug affects Norton Antivirus 2004 as well as all other Symantec English-language products which carry the "2004" label as part of the product's brand name.
Symantec officials have published a solution to the problem on the company's website.
