Using 360 on a Standard (Non-Admin) Windows Account
Should I be able to access most Norton 360 functions in Windows 10 using a standard (non-admin) windows user account? For example should I be able to change backup settings or restore from backup using a standard account?
I'm unable to access most things from my standard user account. When I go to Restore Files for example I'm stopped with a message that says "Access Denied. You need to be an Administrator to perform this action." For a long time, up until a few days ago, I was able access most everything like this from my standard account. So I assumed I was dealing with a problem that crept up and I started a chat with Norton Support. After 45 min the chat rep was not able to fix the issue. I then began to wonder if this is an issue at all or if its normal behavior. Perhaps there was something wrong with my previous Windows/Norton configuration where I was able to do things it shouldn't have let me.
