Norton VPN no longer starts automatically after the latest update

My Norton VPN is set to launch automatically on system startup but fails to do so following the most recent update. If I double-click the desktop icon it starts okay but something appears to have gone wrong with the update. Any advice? Thank you.

Re: Norton VPN no longer starts automatically after the latest update

What operating system and version are you using? If Win 8 or 10, are you restarting, or shutting down and starting up again? If shutting down, you may not be getting a full shutdown necessary to have fully updated the Norton Secure VPN program. If you use Windows 8/8.1 or 10, there can be an issue with the Windows Fast Startup feature.. See more information here.

I just tried on Windows 10 Pro ver 1803, and the 1.6.0.280 version of Norton Secure VPN, and the VPN started and connected as it should.

It the Fast Startup suggestion does not help, I would suggest uninstalling Norton VPN, restarting your computer, then reinstall Norton VPN and test.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
