Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

After updating two computers to windows 10 version 1803, Norton is missing from the “right-click” context menu on one of them. Re-installing Norton did not improve it.

It’s basically the same problem as described in this post, but the suggested solution does not work. None of the “Symantec” registry entries seem to be disabled/blocked.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Have you disabled Fast Start Up as this is known to cause issues in Win 10, and have you done a full RESTART ?

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

The article does not seem to apply to windows 10 and more importantly: That’s not my problem. Not the whole context menu is missing, just the “Norton” entry. Everting else (open, copy, cut, …) is still there on right-click, including the stuff form 3rd party products like “unzip with …” from the program I use for that. But thanks anyway for your suggestion.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Nope, still not working. And I’m not sure how this is supposed to improve matters since it enables/disables the complete context menu. I’ve got the menu, just the “Norton” entry is missing.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Understood that you have the full menu. The premise was to disable, reboot then reenable although the effects should be immediate. In my install I have Norton in the right click context menu and it only has the options to add a file to backup. Not the scan now option as before upgrading to Windows 10 1803. The windows upgrade seems to be having an issue with Norton not the other way around.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

I did try all options with restarts between them and still no Norton in the context menu. But you are right, it’s probably a problem of windows rather than Norton. I just asked here because getting an answer form Microsoft about something that involves 3rd party products usually results in them telling you it’s not their fault. I guess I have to wait and see if things improve with some future update. At least it’s just an inconvenience and not a matter of system security.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

After the Spring Update of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, the Norton Internet Security context menus have disappeared.

I used the Remove and Re-Install tool and did a complete re-installation, but the context menus did not return.

I use the latest Norton Internet Security version 22.14.0.54.

This is an issue for me, as I sometimes use the context menu to select files to scan. This has become a lot harder from the application's main interface.

Is there another way to get the context menu back e.g. through a Registry hack or other context menu setting?

Cheers,

Dave

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

All: I confirmed yesterday the Norton context menu is indeed present as I was updating a laptop for a customer from W10 1709. Disappeared to ONLY add a file to backup on 1803. Even registry changes to disable then reenable will not change the behavior. Although a minor issue it does need to be corrected.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

As a matter of interest what CPU's are you using?

I have upgraded four systems so far of which one Intel, and one AMD have NS&B installed. The AMD was the only system to experience the issue being reported in various posts, whilst the Intel was perfectly fine.

All the solutions posted have not worked, the only solution to work was a clean install of the latest Windows update.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

FWIW!! I experience this scenario on BOTH my Intel and AMD machines. The issue lies with the Spring Update to version 1803. It's been a train wreck so far. Slow loading at boot time, Edge opening when no browser is being used, changing default apps to the Microsoft defaults on its own. Removing already certified video drivers and in one case the entire suite. Feedback setting are greyed out to the default "insider build" setting, cannot be changed. The list goes on and on. MS needs to get its head out of the dark spot.

FYI not experiencing any of the issues you are experiencing, guess that's the way it goes.

I have one more Intel system to upgrade an Acer laptop with NS&B installed, but I will probably clean install which seems to alleviate the problem, I'll try an in place upgrade first see if it occurs.

Updated new version 1803 windows 10 April-May 2018. The right-click Norton scan(ning) feature is not appearing or functioning on the desktop context menu.

It is indeed not - the Taskbar Context Menu or the Start ( menu) Context Menu that is the problem for my Notebook after installing the new version 1803 of windows 10 -april 2018. It is the right-click Desktop Context Menu One of the most important setup features of the Norton Security product packages that is defected and not appearing on the desktop context menu at this present time 06 May 2018. / On my Asus-Notebook.

If you are trying to change a Norton Setting, Norton's Product Tamper Protection is stopping you from doing this. That is why you see the 'Can not edit" message.

You might be able to access it if you start Windows in Safe Mode. Although I would just wait for Norton to fix it properly.

I wonder if it has anything to do with Microsoft wanting their customers to use Microsoft Security program instead of 3rd party security programs.. Does it show up for Malwarebytes or Windows Defender if that is the current name of the program? Just wondering and for my edification. I'm not on Windows 10 yet.

So every thing looks correct on my system, that is the registry settings and the DLL files, but I still don't have the right context menu for Norton AV, but all my other programs do show up on the right context menu, so logic would dictate that the issue is with the current window 10 update and the current version of Norton.

Hello Dick. Last evening when checking the registry the drive directory was not present. This morning, the machine I was using gave me three prompt BSOD's "Thread Stuck in device driver".

The data value is - {FAD61B3D-699D-49B2-BE16-7F82CB4C59CA}

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Same problem after Windows 10 1803 update.

Norton Security vs 22.14.0.54 right click menu now says, Add to Backup or Exclude from Backup with no option to run an antivirus scan.

Also if try to do a right mouse windows defender file scan get the message: Page not available. Your IT administrator has limited access to some areas of this app, and the item you tried to access is not available.

I have uninstalled Norton Security and now Windows Defender working fine with right mouse menu. Will just carry on with Windows Defender for the moment until Symantec get this sorted.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

I have the same issue on all my PCs with windows 1803 update. My version Norton Security 22.14.0.54 right click menu has Add to Backup or Exclude from Backup only. It's really scary that I can't scan files with right click.

Looks like windows update broke something within Norton. Interestingly that when computer boots, "Windows Defender Security Center" shield icon shows red mark for short period of time and when I open it I see that "Virus & Threat Protection" and "Firewall & Network Protection" are not green (see photo). Within a a few minutes it settles.

Definitely Windows Defender Security Center and Norton Internet Security have issues after 1803 update.

Norton, please fix it!!!

Thank you.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

The larger and common issue here is updating to 1803. It's basically nothing more than a hellified insider build chocked full of issues. BSOD's on machines that have never had them, deleting entire graphics driver packages (yes Windows not Norton). I'm willing to bet microcode updates packed into the Spring Update will be the end game culprit. Removal and reinstall of the Norton product most likely will not provide any difference in results. I have one machine still on 1709 and it has zero issues with the current build of Norton version 22.14.0.54 and context menus. The registry values are the same as with 1803 for Norton. I'm rolling back all my machines this week and deferring windows updates until their mess has been verified as corrected. May be something you all should consider as well.

Hello

My son who is on NSBU and Windows 10 1803 says he has the Norton Context Menu so it says Scan with Norton. Not sure of his exact words, but something to that effect. He doesn't live here so I haven't seen all of his computers and I don't think he went around checking his brother's computer nor his Surface 3 and what ever computers he has. I will have to ask him if he will check my hubby's laptop since I can't physically get to it.. Sorry, I can't give you any details of what he sees in his registry or if he even looked in his registry for this..

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

After three tries at failing to fix the issue using the NRNR tool, I manually uninstalled Norton using the Windows add-remove apps application in the control panel, rebooted, downloaded and ran the Norton installer: NortonNISDownloader.exe, and now I get the Norton right click menu to scan a file and the file info option also shows up, so here are the steps that I did to fix the issue:

1. While your Norton is installed, go to you Norton account and download the NortonNISDownloader.exe. You will use this file later in step 6.

2. Download the NRNR tool and run it, it will ask you to restart your computer.

3. Once the computer restarts it will reinstall Norton, but the right menu will not work.

4 Restart your computer again, note that the right menu option will not work.

5. Go to all settings, apps, click on apps and features, and search for Norton in the search box. Select the option to uninstall Norton. Reboot after uninstalling Norton.

6. After restarting your computer, run the NortonNISDownloader.exe file that you download in step 1.

7. Reboot after the Norton installation is completed -  your right menu should now work.

8. Note that the file insight option will only be displayed on files that can be executed; program files that don't execute such as Word or Excel documents will not have the file insight option available.

Hope this helps.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Just to add my voice to those who have lost the "Scan Now" option in right click options after the Win 10 1803 update. I'm not going through the hassle of removing and reinstalling Norton or am I faffing about in the registry. If I have to remove Norton I'll replace it with something else. Support is aware of the issue so let's hope for a fix through Live Update. Going forward it's a good idea to test your software with any Windows update especially large "Feature Updates" such as 1803.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

All: Dick SRAM has the solution. Three R&R's and my systems got 14 simultaneous updates. One reboot and context menus are normal again. I think the Norton dev team slipped a "silent fix" into the update stream. Either way, issue resolved after MUCH efforts. Thanks to all who participated.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

The point is that users should not have to do "MUCH effort" to fix this issue. Are we going to have to go through this for every Feature Update that Microsoft releases ? I have four Win 10 systems running Norton. Am I going to have to do "three R&R's" on each of them to fix this issue ? Yes the Windows Update broke something in Norton but it's up to Norton to fix the issue on their end. If they can't do so by a simple Live Update then I'd like to request a refund and I'll move on to another Security Suite. I just did the Live Update this morning and the issue has not been fixed. Norton's full functionality is still broken. Support acknowledged the issue on May 2nd, going on a week now. I am losing confidence in Norton's ability to protect my systems.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Marc, you said:

Following this entire thread the issue with Norton appeared AFTER the release of Windows 10 1803, not before. Chrome and FF are also two of the biggest PITA's due to their update cycles. In this forum, the original poster also said:

After updating two computers to windows 10 version 1803, Norton is missing from the “right-click” context menu on one of them.

That is clear evidence as we all know MS broke something with their release. I have said the Spring Update is nothing more than a hell-a-fied insider release and it is. Unfortunately!! The solution IS performing a R&R AFTER the update to 1803 as Dick SRAM has noted above. Understand your frustration 100%. The issue was not with Norton, it resides with Microsoft. My two Intel machines, both AMD machines as well as both my rack servers are all now issue free with the current build of Windows and their Norton installs. I highly recommend visiting this site to follow their suggestions within their "MS-DEFCON" threads. Interesting and highly professional no BS info for the everyday user as well as IT pro's.

Re: Norton right-click context menu missing after windows update

Of course the issue happened  AFTER the Win 10 update. No one said it happened before. As I said...."the Windows Update broke something in Norton". This won't be the last Feature Update Microsoft will offer for Win 10.

If Norton is so easily broken and so difficult for the developers to fix after a Windows update breaks something then I have chosen the wrong Security Suite. We're going on a week since Support has acknowledged the issue and still no official fix. I'm not going through removing and reinstalling Norton three times on each of my systems to fix an issue that quite frankly should have been caught and fixed by Norton before the 1803 update ever hit the main distribution channels.

Yes Windows 10 is absolute rubbish but I am forced to use it for some of my work and I bought Norton because it supports Win 10. If that support can't be maintained then I'm no longer interested in using Norton. It's not an emotional decision but a practical one.   

Anyway I'll give it until the end of the week and if a simple fix has not been offered by then I'll request a refund and choose another Security Suite. Until then the software I paid to use is no longer functioning properly even though I do a Live Update two or three times a day.
