Installing Norton Security Premium on Windows 10

1. How long does it take to download Norton Security Premium onto Windows 10 with about a 7.5 Mbps download speed? I downloaded the file after logging into my Norton Account. I previously had Norton 360 and when I updated to Norton Security Premium it never fully installed on my second device.

2. How long does it take to install Norton Security Premium once it has been downloaded and I open the file?

3. Am I supposed to turn off the Windows Firewall or Windows Defender before installation?

It's been about 5 hours since I began the download.

Thank you!

I mean 5 hours since I began the installation.

The whole process from the start of the download to the product being fully installed should be no more than 5 minutes.

Did you have another security program on the computer before trying the Norton install? Was it fully removed with the removal utility for that software?

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Installing Norton Security Premium on Windows 10

I only had Windows Defender on the computer. I found out that I had downloaded the Norton Security file too many times so it told me that Norton Download Manager was already running. I deleted the 5 copies and was able to continue the initial installation. You were right it only took about 5 minutes once I opened the correct file and did not have any duplicates running.
