Norton Security and Installed Programs Problem

Norton Security and Backup says Norton Security has detected 106 installed Programs. Is there a way to make that message go away.

Where are you seeing this message? Is it after a scan of your system?

A screenshot will help us understand your question.

Did you choose the scan option to 'Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors?'

I had the same thing on 1703 build and it gone after 1709 update. I think it happens because Norton see Windows Updates as installed programs, that's why there is so much "programs".

Vitalik93 I think your right this only poped up after I did a refresh of the system. Do you know of a way to make Norton think this is ok.

Re: Norton Security and Installed Programs Problem

Are you downloading a fresh copy of the Norton Removal and Reinstall Tool from    www.norton.com/nrnr   

If you are using a previously downloaded copy it may give the errors you are seeing. Especially for the NRT. It has been replaced by the NRNR tool that has an advanced option to Remove Only.

I turned off Auto Protect to install a prog .exe that I know is safe. Now it will not turn it back on and the little white notification box will not keep flipping on and off. Can you help?

Did you restart your computer after installing your program?

If you are using Win 8 or 10, and you have the Fast Startup feature turned on, your shutting down at night and starting up again does not get you a complete system shutdown that is required to update any running system files. Choosing Restart will get the full shutdown.  

If you use Windows 8/8.1 or 10, there can be an issue with the Fast Start feature.. See more information here.
