"Fix Now" needs automatic repair option
I found a post and questionable "solution" on the "Fix Now" problem that always comes up when Norton has not run on a computer that has been turned off for a while. I strongly agree with the person who posted the thread that requiring a manual fix for a problem that the Norton program should automatically correct on its own is silly and dangerous. Does Norton believe that some users would willingly choose to NOT Fix the problem? The person who provided the "solution" to the problem said that in time Norton will self correct and update the system. But do many users want to have their computer turned on in an unprotected state and wait for Norton to catch up? I don't think so. The simple and logical solution would be for Norton to automatically update itself when it discovers a vulnerable "Fix Now" situation. This seems like a perfect task for the automatic updates to handle.
I am also a very long term user of Norton Internet Security and, aside from this relatively minor criticism, I've always found it to be a very good program.
