Background Idle Cleanup & Reinstalling NS
I have two questions please. The first requires a solution but the second is just for information.
1. I have been through all the settings in NS and deactivated all background idle scans. I believe I have exhausted my search for turning off all such checks. However, I keep getting a pop up telling me that Norton is conducting background idle clean-up checks. How do I stop Norton Security from doing this once and for all?
2. I had to reinstall NS yesterday. I believe it's the 220.127.116.11 edition installer I have saved on my disc. Now the software installs and updates to the latest version (18.104.22.168) with no problems. However; why does this software download loads of updates then wants me to restart, then downloads more updates, another restart, then downloads more updates, another restart ... and so on. I had to "apply patch" twice and restart the computer 4 times during different stages of the updates. Why can't NS just download the latest patch in one hit, rather than this staggered update approach?
