Anyone who has ever had to develop on a machine with a virus scanner than has “real time protection” knows the pain that it can cause. Have you ever had issues in Visual Studio where files are locked and don’t become unlocked till you restart your environment / iis / your machine? Well, in the majority of cases, it’s thanks to Symantec getting it’s grubby hands all over it.
Slightly more details:
imgArr = new Image(“Aniceimage.jpg”);
imgArr = new Image(“anotherimage.jpg”);
imgArr = new Image(“TheLastImage.gif”);
To show how ignorant they are, if you break it up into script blocks it works fine.
<script>imgArr = new Image(“Aniceimage.jpg”);</script>
<script>imgArr = new Image(“anotherimage.jpg”);</script>
<script>imgArr = new Image(“TheLastImage.gif”);</script>
I’ve filed a complaint with Symantec – lets hope they take it seriously!
