Norton Security Service stops constantly
I've been experiencing an issue for some time now where all services and exe related to Norton Security are stopping, quite quickly after starting. I thought initially perhaps something malicious and undetected had been disabling it. I tried to run the program a few days ago after I noticed it was not running (for quite some time apparently) and it came up with an error and requested the remove and reinstall process, which I did and that was successful. It immediately returned a response after a fresh install and reboot that I'd received the bitcoinminer trojan and promptly quarantined it. Not long after that it stopped yet again out of the blue. I have been trying to figure out what I have been doing in norton to enact this response from the program and I am pretty sure I have just identified it as an incomplete update or an update error. Each time I enacted the update process, it would work until installing "update 2 of 2" and then stop suddenly. This happened repeatedly so I went through the remove and reinstall process yet again as I did perform a system restore rollback in the last 48 hrs.
After this very recent remove and reinstall everything seemed to be fine until I yet again initiated the liveupdate process. It again reached the 'installing 2 of 2' part before again stopping the entire program completely. I will put money on it if I run the program yet again it will stop within minutes or immediately during the update process at the same spot.
Yes Windows Defender is disabled.
Aka please immediately fix the bugs in your software.
I've read every forum piece on this and nothing I've tried is working. This is an outright failure of the application.
