2 Norton 360 icons in taskbar

Kind of an odd happening, since most people lose their icons...but sometimes and for apparently no reason, I'll have two Norton 360 icons at the bottom in my taskbar. They're exactly the same and both function as they normally would. I can use either one to open Norton and everything. Is this a problem? Is there two instances of Norton running? Or is this nothing to worry about?

 

It only happens randomly and usually just restarting the computer fixes it and takes it back to just one icon. I'm using Windows 7. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions/etc!

Re: 2 Norton 360 icons in taskbar

It seems to happen from time to time.  I think it is because there are two tasks in taskmanager, one under user and one under system.  Sometimes it self corrects.  I set one of them to hide, so if it comes and goes, I don't notice any more.

Under certain circumstances profanity provides relief denied even to prayer.

So it's not really a big deal or anything to worry about? Good to know. Thanks :)
