Registry errors

I currently have Norton Security installed. First, I would like to know the difference between Norton Security and Norton Internet Security, which is the program I thought I was buying. They are apparently different because when I check to see what Symantec programs I have licenses for it lists both programs and shows my Norton Security as active and the other one due for renewal.

I have had many issues since installing Norton Security--PC running very slow, hiccups in Microsoft Outlook, clicking to open an email and the PC jumping back and forth to different screens etc. Norton support helped and set the proper defaults but I am still having major issues with my system.

I suspect possible registry errors and don't know if my Norton Security program checks for these. I thought I was buying a complete program to protect the PC but it appears that Symantec has these sectioned off so you have to buy several programs to take care of a plethora of issues. So, my question is two-fold; does Norton Security have a feature to check for registry errors and second, if not can I upgrade to a complete program for Norton that takes care of everything, including registry errors?

Re: Registry errors

Hello Tim Strawn

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum

Norton Internet Security supports only 3 computers. The latest update of Norton Internet Security, version 22.5.0.124 brings the program up to the same features as Norton Security. There have been several problems with the jump from 21.7.0.11 to 22.5.0.124. If you look around the Forum, you will see the problems. NIS has been discontinued, but it will continue to be supported and updated. You can only buy it thru the Norton Store if you are already using it. In other words, you can only renew your subscription.

Norton Security, version 22.5.0.124 also is good for up to 5 devices including computers, Macs, iPhones, Androids, tablets etc. The major problems with this program has to do with iTunes and iPods. This program is the newest one. You can buy it anywhere that is a legit place and get the best price you can find. After you install it, you can get any remaining days added to your subscription. You have to call customer support to get the days added on.

Thanks

EDIT: Neither program has a registry program now. They are considered as too dangerous for people to use unless you are an expert, unless you can back it up and be able to restore it, have a choice of what it is going to repair. Norton product did not have these features, so it was removed.

Re: Registry errors

Norton Internet Security is available online.  Availability of NIS is location dependent and Norton Security is not available all locations <info here>.  Just checked my location.  NIS appears to be offered online.

Re: Registry errors

I bought Norton Security to protect my system and so far, it seems to have created more problems than it solved. Having all kinds of issues and suspected registry problems so I still have a question about solving registry problems. Malware seems to like to get into the registry and I need an effective program OR service to take care of it. Any advice would be appreciated

Hello

There is a Norton Utilities program which has a registry cleaner in it. Some have mentioned that this program is free, but I am not sure about that. Some people use ccleaner. It has a registry cleaner also. As mentioned before, please be careful with it.
