Re: Secure VPN not starting automatically

Have you restarted your computer since installing Norton VPN? Not Shutdown and startup again. If you use Windows 10, there can be an issue with the Windows Fast Startup feature.. See more information here.

I also have this issue, system has been rebooted (many times). Fast Start is not enabled on my system. v1.7.0.325. Where does/should the start information be created?

Try going into your Norton Secure VPN, and clicking on the Settings gear at the top right. Uncheck the settings for Autoconnect and Launch at Startup. Then restart your computer and reset those two settings. Then restart the computer again to see if you get connected automatically.

I have tried this and I suddenly had a lightbulb moment. You *have* to be logged in as administrator to do this. I therefore feel that the options that cannot be used by a non admin user should be greyed out. That way there would be no confusion.

Once you set this up using a Windows admin account, does the app function normally again for a standard user? 

FWIW I am able to make these changes from my standard Windows user account.
