Revised System Requirements for Vista SP2 (and Win XP SP3)?
I have a 32-bit Vista SP2 computer running the latest Norton Security Premium v188.8.131.52. Guru yank just posted a reply in GordonK's thread Norton Toolbar Problem which noted that system requirements for Norton products running on Vista computers have been recently updated. From https://us.norton.com/norton-security-with-backup:
- Microsoft Windows Vista (all versions) with Service Pack 1 (SP 1) or later. New features are no longer supported on Windows Vista operating systems. ID Safe browser extension is no longer supported on Windows Vista.
- Microsoft Windows XP (32-bit) Home/Professional with Service Pack 3 (SP 3) or later. New features are no longer supported on Windows XP. ID Safe browser extension is no longer supported on Windows XP.
I don't use Norton Identity Safe, but could someone from Symantec please explain the meaning of "New features are no longer supported on Windows Vista operating systems"? Going forward, does this new policy affect mean that Win XP SP3 and Vista SP2 users will no longer receive future product updates (e.g., to v22.12.2.x) but continue to receive all SDS, IPS and other definition updates? Does this means that Win XP SP3 and Vista SP2 users can no longer install Norton Identity Safe in fully supported browsers like Firefox ESR v52?
I'll post an excerpt from my live chat today with Norton customer support since in my next reply there seems to be some confusion over whether "Windows Vista" refers to the original Vista OS (i.e., without service packs) or all versions of Vista (i.e., including Vista SP1 and Vista SP2).
32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.7.0 * NS Premium v184.108.40.206 * MB Premium v3.3.1
