Oddity with latest NS version--once again calls itself NIS in a couple of places

Using Windows 7, and I've been using NS for a few weeks (after clean NRT removal of previous NIS and new install of NS).

I just got the update to the latest NS version 2.5.4.24 yesterday. I happened to notice a couple of oddities. The new desktop icon for the new version was no longer named "Norton Security", but was named "Norton Internet Security." Likewise, when I click on Windows Start menu and go to "All Programs", the folder is listed as "Norton Security", but when I open the list of subtabs, it is called "Norton Internet Security." Before yesterday, the subtab had also said "Norton Security", i.e., it was consistent.

So at least for me, somehow the term "Norton Internet Security" has reappeared in at least a couple of places since the latest update. It doesn't seem to be of any significance that I've discovered, however. When I click the Norton Internet Security icon it does launch my Norton Security. Or when I open it from the Start menu> All Programs>Norton Security> then the "Norton Internet Security" subtab, it also launches Norton Security.

Hi, mesquitebean. Likely that despite using the NRT, that a few fragments from NIS remain.

If you wish, you can always right click on the menu item for NS and Click on Send to Desktop Create Shortcut, if you want the correct icon.

As long as everything else is working properly, I wouldn't be too concerned.

Hello

It is also possible that you haven't received the complete update yet. Have you restarted since getting the update? What does your Norton Account.com show?

Thanks.

Everything is fine in Norton Account. Yes, I restart at least daily for various reasons. It's not really a problem. I simply renamed the desktop icon to Norton Security. Was just surprised that the old name had reappeared in a couple of places. Only mentioned it here in case someone had merely mislabeled a line of code in the latest update, but if that had been the case, others would have likely noticed a change in the shortcut and menu name as well.

As F4E suggests above, maybe it's some reference to NIS somewhere left behind from the previous product. In any case, everything seems to work fine. Thanks.

Difference between NS version 22.5.4.24 and Norton 360 version 22.5.4.24 is number of seats.  3 seats for N360 and 5 seats for Norton Security Deluxe.  http://us.norton.com/products

Oh right so N360 is no different to Norton Premium only that Premium has 10 seats and N360 multi-device has 5 (deluxe doesn't have 25gb of online back up or auto tune-ups while idle):
