Automatic Download of New Version Option

Ever since version  22 was released, all the new versions have used the same 22 version number and only the minor number has changed. Can this option be updated so these "minor" versions can be delayed. A lot of these "minor" updates had major updates and have been buggy and caused problem until a fix was released. Just recently 22.10.0.83 was released with a major bug and Norton had to release 22.10.0.85 with a fix. If we had the option to delay that update we would have been better off.

I think also this functionality needs some more "updated" definition of terms. Thanks Jim, I've let the team know about your suggestion. (4116947)

@PhoneMan,

Hey Jim, I guess they've solved this issue once and for all now.

In Product Update sunset (IPUA): "Automatic Download of New Version" setting from Administrative Settings has been removed. Going forward, 22.17 customers will run LiveUpdate to upgrade to latest version or silent LU will upgrade automatically.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Yep! They just took the option away to delay any version.

I use Macrium to make an image of my OS disk so when Norton screws up an update I can go back and then cancel Automatic Live Update.
