Norton Security wants to restart every day

I am currently running Norton Security version and it want to restart all the time. I run live update and there is always 1 update that requires the computer to restart but after restart a box pops up that requests the system to restart again and again. This has been going on for about 2 weeks. I have turned off quick boot in both windows 10 and my MSI motherboard apps and this hasn't worked. Any ideas? Thank you.



Re: Norton Security wants to restart every day

Hi, Chrisinwash. Might be worth running the Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool to give you a fresh copy.


After the reinstall run Live Update manually until no more are found restarting when required, and then restart again.

Let us know how you go.

Windows 10 Home X 64

Re: Norton Security wants to restart every day

Have you disabled Windows Fast Startup feature? If you use Windows 10, there can be an issue with the Fast Start feature.. See more information here.

One thing to note is that if you had disabled Fast Startup and you have since received the Win 10 Creators Update, Windows will have turned the feature back on.

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