Norton & Soundblaster Audigy confict

By korris ·
I have seen many complaints but no solutions to this issue. I have a Soundblaster Audigy 2 Platinum sound card which disables Norton Antivirus 2004 when I install anything more than the sound card drivers for it. Norton says it has to do with Creative Media. I don't even have that installed. I have seen many complaints but no solutions...

This is an otherwise solid performer, BUT it has major conflicts with Norton Systemworks 2004 (particularly Norton Antivirus) and the only workaround that allows Norton Antivirus to be enabled is to disable four Soundblaster startup items in msconfig. This is unacceptable and its software needs patched. Creative Labs' tech support will not communicate what functionality is lost when these four startup items in msconfig are disabled. There should have been a warning posted on the outside of the box cautioning of a possible conflict with Norton since Norton is so widely used.
