Norton Utilities 16 vs Norton Internet Security

Whenever I run Norton Utilities 16 registry repair, The Norton Antivirus Online has to do a program repair. Are you going to fix Norton Utilities 16 or is that a dropped product without support?

Windows 10 - all 3 versions do this.

Thanks

Hello Harry. It is NOT recommended to run any registry cleaning software on Windows 10 due to the very issues you are having. Registry entries are more than likely being removed that shouldn't be and the repair of your Norton install is the result. Windows 10 manages the registry quite well on its on. Although this is compatible issues abound when using the registry cleaning portion. Please have a look at these threads although its dated it is still relevent:

You may be onto something there. There have been no updates to NU 16 since before Win 10 was released. I would not hold my breath for any future updates.

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

Hello Harry, sorry for the late follow-up. How have you made out getting your issue resolved? Did you try the suggestions we posted? A user did get this working and activated on Windows . Please let us know.
