Naming of the Computer in Settings / Profile
I noticed a new "feature" in version 2.8.0 5 regarding the naming of the computer when it is added to the Norton Family account, and the way it shows up when you log on to Norton Family and go into Settings.
Way back when, you could choose the name of the computer when you added it to Norton Family.
Then in later versions, prior to 184.108.40.206, it would take the Computer Name directly from the operating system.
Now, with Version 220.127.116.11, it is adding an operating system tag - "_Win7" or "_WinXP" - to the end of the Computer Name.
But if the Computer Name is longer than 8 characters, it is truncating the name after the 8th character, and then adding on the operating system tag - "_Win7" or "_WinXP"
In a computer lab situation, often the only thing that makes the Computer Name unique is what's after the 8th character. Like a number. All the computers in the lab have the same Computer Name except for a number at the end.
Why is it necessary to truncate the Computer Name or add the Operating System tag in the first place????
PLEASE don't do this!!!!
