Norton 360 Smart Firewall and Installation issues
I have Norton 360 version 126.96.36.199 installed on my computer and every time I run auto fix it keeps "repairing installation". I usually do this often
because in the past I have discovered that for some reason Norton 360 slows my PC to a crawl and therefore needs to be periodically checked. Notice this
issue is happening on a fresh install with Windows, with all updates applied. Also there are no error messages to speak of just that eventually Norton
hangs my system and the previously mentioned fix needs to be applied to get it to a working state. I also noticed this occasionally happens when running
the trusty second opinion scumware scan with Malwarebytes.
Also keep getting UpNP blocked messages from Smart Firewall as follows:
Rule name Default Block UpNP Discovery
Severity . Normal
protocol udp 17
port ssdp 1900
process path C:/windows/system 32/svchost.exe
I have the offending IP address and will furnish that information if deemed appropriate. My concerns are that this will clog my security logs with Norton,
that this is an attempt to install worms on my system, and finally whatever this is is looking to break the firewall down with repeated connection attempts.
These are my issues and concerns, looking forward to feedback or responses. Thanks for your time.
