Norton Product Feature Suggestion: Norton AntiVirus Definitions

Hi,

I think it would be really helpful, since symantec have taken out the Norton AntiVirus Definitions' Date from Norton 2009 Products and Newer, that the Anti-Virus Definitions you have installed are shown in the Security History, just like the Anti-Phishing Definitions and Intrusion Prevention Signatures are.  This would enable customers to quickly and easily see what Virus Definitions they have installed.

I'd also like to see the Anti-Spam Definitions' Update in the Security History showing what Version you have installed.

Hi Red

I suggested this during the beta phase of 2010 but nothing got implemented.

Floating_Red,

Thanks for the suggestion. It has been officially entered to the big 'ol list of possible future enhancements. No promises though (I want it too).

Why is this important?  If the Live Update system is working and your system has no errors then what is the point of tracking something else to worry about?

Re: Norton Product Feature Suggestion: Norton AntiVirus Definitions

Hi, Everyone,

Thank-you for all your Replies. 

While I think that N.I.S. 2010 is a great product, it'd also like to see the Definitions Version to be displayed in the Details of the Security History File Insight/Advanced Details that were Currently Installed that Detected the Threat like in Norton 2009 Products and Earlier.
