I Can Not Use NS Because "Tamper Protect" disables itself.
I reported last night across different threads about issues with a fresh clean re-install of NS:
1.) After a successful install the first two updates complete, but after they do the Green Banner turns maroon color and I get a red warning that "the service has expired." The next update( the third initial update) completes successfully with a green banner - is this because the combination of an updated NS and a new initial update has made the first two updates obsolete?
2.) On the first Start-Up of NS on reboot I get a red exclamation point on the tray icon, but this soon turns green.
3.) The Deal Breaker. Just as I reported last night, the "Tamper Protection" in settings does not stay checked. I open settings immediately after install and it's checked. Close settings after making my settings choices and when I reopen settings the "Tamper Protection" it is un-checked. So I re-check it-close settings, open settings and the "X" next to Tamper Protection is gone - rinse-wash-and repeat. For me this makes NS unusable. The firewall in NS has been tested to be very strong, but even with Tamper Protect (or what is called Self-Protect in other products) there are enough ways to disable an av product so without "Tamper Protect" I consider NS to be extremely vulnerable to being disabled by an attack and will not use it. This is a recent development. Currently I don't have enough time to have Customer Support try to fix it, and frankly, I don't care how "trusted" they are, I avoid any and all situations where I need to give a remote technician access to my PC. I have had had an incident where a remote technician from a most trusted company finalized by cuaisng more issues than were fixed.
Any ideas why Tamper Protect won't stay enabled? I have scanned my PC with several security products and they show my PC is clean.
