Norton Security 2015 steals focus
Running Win 7 Home edition and upgraded to Norton Security 2015 from NIS this week.
HTPC with Win 7, Norton Security 2015 and NPVR.
NPVR loaded on startup.
NPVR loses focus at 2 mins and again at 3 mins from reboot.
If Norton is disabled, focus stays with NPVR – no problems.
Solved it – not elegantly – by putting two files in Windows/Start/All Programs/Startup as below:
REM .. Start.bat
cd\program files (x86)\NPVR\
start nextpvr.exe -ontop & start nextpvr.exe –updateepg
; Remark - Autohotkey file – NPVR.ahk
#WinActivateForce #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
EnvAdd, Timethen, 2
Timethen += 3, m
if (A_Now >= Timethen)
WinActivate ; use the window found above
The += 3, m is set to 3 mins but can be anything longer than the loss of focus.
I know this is not elegant.
Can this be solved within Norton ? Or, am I missing the obvious ??
(Alternatively – stop using Norton, I guess ..)
Problem exists with default settings. Tried changing as below:
Norton settings - at the moment:
Auto tasks / IE History - unticked
Auto tasks / Disk optimisation - unticked
Auto Scheduling - Automatic
Admin settings / Idle timer - Off
Admin settings / Norton community watch - Off
Admin settings / Remote management - Off
Admin settings / Norton task monitoring - Off
Admin settings / Power saving mode - Off
Admin settings / Settings password protection - Off
Admin settings / Silent mode - Off
Admin settings / Auto Resume delay from sleep / Auto tasks delay / Idle time out / - all set to 1 minute
Everything else set to default.
