Re: Run as Administrator

The only time you need to use a Windows admin account to run Norton is if you need to change settings. Usually you should only need to use the Standard Windows user account, and the Norton protection features will run in the background.

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

Re: Run as Administrator

So when I open up properties in Norton to turn on the use as administrator will it automatically turn off when signing out of my Norton ?

Re: Run as Administrator

If you are using a Standard Windows user account, Right clicking the Norton desktop icon and choosing Run as Administrator will not work. You will still only have the features allowed by the Standard Windows user. You have to use an actual Windows Admin account to be able to access Norton Settings.
