Norton updates 2013 security software

Norton has refreshed its entire 2013 security range with the release of Norton Antivirus 2013 v20.3Norton Internet Security 2013 v20.3 and Norton 360 v20.3. The update should be applied automatically to all existing Norton 2013 users. Version 20.3 is a maintenance release fixing a number of known issues, but also comes with improvements from the previous release, including enhanced Windows 8 compatibility, better overall performance and improvements to Norton Identity Safe.

Highlighted bug fixes include one resolving issues where the Norton program service ccsvchst.exe doesn’t shutdown properly, plus another that led to blue-screen issues when both Norton and Nero products are installed on the same computer. Another corrected issue saw users complain about other products being uninstalled during the Norton installation process leading to junked Windows installations, while problems with key components like AutoProtect and AntiSpyware getting switched off without being resolved by the Fix Now tool have also been fixed.

Users having problems with two instances of AntiSpam running, one of which consuming 100 per cent resources in Task Manager, have also been fixed along with incorrect subscription expired notices.

The update will be delivered automatically to all existing Norton users, but you can also download and install the latest versions of Norton AntiVirus 2013 v20.3Norton Internet Security 2013 v20.3and Norton 360 v20.3 directly. These function as 15-day trials for those without subscriptions.

And once you’ve discovered how powerful and lightweight Norton products are, why not pick up a full year’s license for a bargain price at the Downloadcrew Software Store? You can get Norton AntiVirus 2013 for just $19.99 for one PC, or $24.99 for three PCs -- both deals represent a saving of 50 percent on the MSRP. You can save even more by purchasing Norton Internet Security 2013: the one-user version costs $23.99, a saving of 60 per cent on the MSRP, while you can protect your entire home for just $29.99 by purchasing the three-user version, which represents a whopping 63 per cent off the usual MSRP.
