I was reminded again today that whenever NS has a new patch that requires NS to either shut down some things or reboot the whole PC it depending on which of my 4 Windows 10 PCs I'm attempting to run the patch on as to how easy (or hard) that evolution will be.
I've updated 3 PCs so far today (my Laptop and two Desktops) and my experience varied between it updating quickly with no input from me other than clicking "apply" (on my laptop), having to manually stop a program/service using task manager (Dell XPS 8700), or having to reboot the PC because a Norton program/service (ncolow) wouldn't/can't be shut down by the patch nor manually in task manager.
Does anyone have a clue what causes the differences between PCs and what I might do to make the patch function work smoothly on all my PCs?
