Dear Norton Community,
We are glad to announce that we have completed testing our latest inline releases of Norton AntiVirus 2012 / Norton Internet Security 2012 and we are ready to release the patches for English users.
To receive the update, simply run LiveUpdate and download the update. A reboot will be required.
To verify you have the update, launch the Main User Interface, click on Support, and select About. The version number of the new release for Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security will be 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206.
Please Note: The patch is currently available to ENGLISH users ONLY. We will be releasing the patches in other regions soon.
The FAQ below tries to answer some common questions:
1. What is the version number for this patch?
The version number is 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168.
Please note that all Norton Internet Security 2012 and Norton AntiVirus 2012 customers with a valid subscription will receive this update for free. Not using the Norton 2012 products? See if you qualify for a FREE update to the 2012 products by visiting the Norton Update Center.
2. When will I receive the patch?
As a standard practice, we will be deploying the patch in a phased manner. On Friday, January 27th 2012, we will be releasing the patch to English customers for a few hours only. We will then monitor our telemetry, as well as this forum, for any problem reports 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 Forums when we make the patch available to all customers.
3. How can I manually install these patches?
This update is currently only available through LiveUpdate. We will update this post when we have the update published in other venues.

126.96.36.199 is also publicly available. Not everyone will have this version. There are only very minor changes between the two versions. No bug fixes or changes to functionality are made between the two builds.
Your product should be considered up-to-date and running the latest version if you're on 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206.
220.127.116.11 was released to support Norton One (Press Release / Site), which is currently a pilot "invitation only" membership that we are launching. All users who have Norton One will be on 18.104.22.168, however, not all users that are on 22.214.171.124 will have Norton One. When we release our next update, everyone will be at the same version number again. 126.96.36.199 simply contained some necessary changes to make it compatible with the Norton One service.
We apologize for having been previously vague regarding the differences. We had to wait until the service was announced before we could comment on it in detail.
If you wish to further discuss Norton One, feel free to post in the Other Norton Products section.
