1. What is the version number for this patch?

Norton Security

2. When will I receive the patch?

As is our standard practice, we are deploying the patch in a phased manner. We have released the patch to randomly selected customers, and will then monitor our telemetry, as well as this forum, for any problems or issues. Once we have confirmed the effectiveness of the patch, we will make it available to all customers. We will post an update on the Norton Community when we make the patch available to all customers.

3. How can I manually install these patches?

This patch is ONLY available via LiveUpdate, and is being released in a phased manner. You may need to run LiveUpdate and reboot a few times before your product is completely updated to the latest version.

A friend asked me to fix a weird noise this desk PC (fan) & he uses Norton, some time since I have - I sorted a few bits out & went though his Norton, I like the new UI & tempted to give it a try for no good reason :)

Going to image back & give the very basic Norton a try mainly for fun, seems the days of it not installing unless you use Chrome have gone - High on FP's it seems - £6:99 from FleaBay :)
