Norton not appearing in the bottom right.

Hi Guys

I was just wondering if I should be worrying about this at all

My Norton 360 is taking a while to load up in the bottom right of my task bar on Windows 8.1

I have my Nortons boot protection turned on and it is set to aggressive. But when I boot my computer up it's not the first thing that appears in the bottom right.

I have run the Norton remove and reinstall tool and it still has a 30 second delay but it seems to be better then what it was before.

But the weird thing that gets me is that after I reinstalled and restarted a few times in my task bar where I have pinned Norton I had a white page where the logo should be. But when I unpinned it and put it back on it was fine

I'm just wondering if I should be worried about this at all?

Thanks a lot

Best Regards

Hello AudiA1

Since you have Win 8/8.1, I would recommend turning off Fast Startup. Norton needs a complete shutdown and startup to work properly. Please run live update until there are no more updates. You could also check your start up items and have a delayed start up for some of them that aren't necessary. Try shutting down with Fast Startup turned off and see what happens.

Hi Floplot

I actually already have fast start up turned off!

Never really liked the feature and heard it did cause some problems with Norton!

I've ran live update till no more updates were found.

I'm about to restart my computer again to see what it's like.

Does it really matter if I doesn't start up straight away? But comes on a few seconds or about a minute later?

Thanks a lot for the swift reply

Best Regards!

Hello AudiA1

I'm on win 7, but I keep mine on aggressive boot up. It probably doesn't matter that much because some users keep it off. Mine seem to load up like all at once. Win 8 may be different and it also depends on your setup.

Hi

Maybe it's just me being too picky about it loading up faster!

As long as it's still protecting me I'm not too bothered.

Do you think it's safe to say I can ignore it being a little slower at the start while loading up?

Thank you

Best Regards

Hello AudiA1

I think you are ok with it a little slower. Check your start up items and see if they all have to start at start up. Perhaps there are some you can have start up when you need them.

Hi flopflot

Hello AudiA1

I hope everything will continue to work ok. Your windows most likely boots up so fast, that isn't hard to tell which icon shows up first. Don't forget also that the icon shows up after it's checked out that your computer is ok. Remember that the icon shows the status of your computer also. It's not just the Norton Logo there. It shows the green checkmark if your computer is ok.

Thanks for marking the thread as solved. If others have a similar problem, they will be able to find the answer. You have a good evening/day also.

Hi, AudiA1. Having Boot time set to Aggressive just ensures Norton loads before anything else, for maximum protection.

When the icon appears is not an issue, as long as you have the green tick !
