Can't change anything with new version of NIS on standard user account.

I'm getting very frustrated with this more recent version of NIS(with backup), which was installed to replace Norton 360 due to subscription expiry.

 I use a standard account on my PC, with N360 I could change a few settings, and restore quarantined files (which I got a lot of due to Nortons amazing abundance of false-positives), so I did not have as much of a problem with it. However with this version I am unable to so much as look at my settings as a standard user, let alone change any settings or restore quarantined files on my standard user account.

 I would like to know if there is some way to allow my standard user account have full access to Norton settings so that I do not have to keep account hopping to change the smallest things.

Using Windows 10 and Norton version 22.5.2.15

IMO ~ Norton version 22.5.2.15 acting as it should have always acted.   Standard user runs with dropped rights.  There was never valid reason for non admin access.

Eh, ok, I'll just have to swap accounts each time I need to change something then. Still frustrating though.

Just my two cents.....FWIW
Caveat:  I run admin user.

In the Start Menu right click the Norton Icon and Run as Administrator and see if you can change options. You will probable get the UAC prompt for the Admin password but is quicker then switching accounts.

Ye-no that has never worked for me, I've tried before on this version and previous versions. Norton just flat out doesn't allow me to change settings unless I am on and logged into the Admin account.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
