PyCharm 2.0 Not Starting After Installing latest Norton Security

After installing latest Norton Securitry Suite, and then lauching PYCharm v2.0 I get the message 'The JVM could not be started.  The maximum heap sze (-Xmx) might be too large or an antivirus or firewall tool blocked the execution'.  Fiddled around with the firewall settings, disabled firewall and antivirus and still same problem.  Uninstalled Norton and problem went away.  Didn't have this problem with McAfee.  Any ideas?  Can always go back to McAfee (but their having some software problems) or go to another antivirus.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

You can try reducing the -Xmx value in bin\pycharm.exe.vmoptions under the PyCharm installation directory.

Well... found out what the problem was.  A litte background:  I use Comcast (comcast.net) for DSL.  For security they provide for free Norton Security Suite and a program they developed called Comcast Constant Guard.  Once I un-installed Constant Guard the problem went away.

Thanks,
