Is Norton fully up to date with latest Windows update? Do I need to do anything?
I am running Windows 10 v 1803 (latest) with KB4100403 and KB4103721 (0403 from today) without problems. The only weird thing I noticed was for awhile the Security Dashboard would show red at boot-up (I don't have fast boot enabled) and it took some time for it to gather info from Norton that the Virus and threat protection & Firewall and network protection were active - but that's cleared up (probably as a result of the latest Live Updates).
I think you're good to go...
There does seem to be one issue that has affected a number of users regarding the right click option to scan individual files and folders. Although not affecting all Norton users, you should be aware of it. https://community.norton.com/en/forums/norton-right-click-context-menu-m...
One suggestion that has been made is to disable Norton Auto Protect while you process the Windows Update. There is information that MS suggests removing/disabling third party AV products before updating. This would leave you with Windows Defender protecting your system while you get the update.
If you disable Norton Auto Protect then Windows Defender will not be activated and you are unprotected. On my 3 Windows 10 systems I keep Norton and Malwarebytes running during Windows Updates and have had no problems. Your results may vary.
Thanks for the clarification Jim. I should have separated the disable Norton from the MS suggestions to remove the AV products.
