4.1 changes - lock behavior changed for antivirus
So, some users are noticing that we have changed the way the locks work in Norton Internet Security 4.1 for Mac. Basically, the antivirus portion now behaves the same way as the firewal, that is, if you are the admin user, the app opens already unlocked. This makes it easier to make fundamental changes to the application settings when you are the administrator. Non admin users will need to enter in the proper login to make changes.
The Confidential portion of Norton Internet Security comes locked because we want to make sure that the confidential data is not displayed be default.
