Fix in Progress

Today, I ran my Norton Internet Security Scan and it produced a message in the results "Your computer has a fix in progress" However, everything on my computer is running fine. There are no issues, I dont know why I got this message which appears to be stuck in this status. Norton is not fixing anything. It has been 5 hours and the norton internet security box has a check mark but next to it has this message.

Re: Fix in Progress

The fix in progress is for some issue Norton found in your Norton Security product. Maybe a need to run LiveUpdate, or perform a scan.

Restarting your computer should reset this indication. Be sure you are restarting and not just shutting down and starting up again. If you use Windows 8/8.1 or 10, there can be an issue with the Fast Start feature.. See more information here.

Same here, its been ongoing for a few days and there is a fear of not being fully protected. there are two boxes that load and they will sit here for hours and hours with no progress made at all. I am using Windows 7 Professional. No other issues with the computer or its performance but this!

Even though you are on Windows 7, did you try restarting your computer to help Norton complete whatever it is trying to do?

Re: Fix in Progress

Yup, sure did. Several times and this keeps happening the firewall and stuff is still being controlled by norton as well. I even did the necessary windows updates with a reset thinking that may resolve the issue but same result

Re: Fix in Progress

Finally, after several restarts, I no longer have this issue. The "fix" status has gone away.  Thanks to the community and the visitor who offered up their solution. I hope others are able to resolve their issue.
