Version Number

Where on Norton site can I find out what the current version of NIS 2009 is?  I know how to find it in the program, however I do not know if it is the most current.  My version is 16.5.0.135

Thanks

Re: Version Number

Norton does not report the current build version numbers on their web site.  The latest released current versions are all announced here on the board.  For NAV2009 and NIS2009 that is 16.5.0.135 or 16.5.0.134 depending on where you live (USA area) and when you received the latest version upgrade via Live Update.  For N360 the version is 16.0.0.135.

The boards here for each product will have news about the latest released versions for the public to be informed about.

Re: Version Number

If you have Version 135 of Norton Internet Security 2009/AntiVirus 2009, then you were having Issues with Web Protection Definitions Installing.

All Users with Norton 2009 Products get all Product Versions Released, whether they like it or not; these Updates do Require a Re-Start.

I don't understand the comment. Unless I missed something, the original post by markcc does not mention that.

Re: Version Number

Now I'm confussed (along with the OP and others I'm sure) can you elorate on what you meant Floating_Red?  Did you think the OP did not have version 135 or was having problems obtaining version 135 or ????

Re: Version Number

I do have version 16.5.0.135 installed.  It appears all is well.  How do I make sure the Web Protection Definitions are up to date?

Re: Version Number

Hi markcc,

I am sure they are if the NIS main interface is showing "Secure".

I don't know why that comment about Web Protection Updates was made, but apparently it did cause some concern which I was afraid might happen.

In order to check the folder where your Definitions are located, first go to Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab and then check "Show hidden files and folders". 

The Definitions are located in (XP) C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Norton\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\Norton\Definitions or:

(Vista) C:\Program Data\Norton\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\Norton\Definitions.

You will see folders there for IPSDefs, VirusDefs and WebProtectionDefs.

In the WebProtectionDefs folder you should see a sub folder named as a current date, such as "20090502.001".

You do not have to check these folders on a daily basis. As long as your product indicates "Secure", you are protected.
