Clueless Companies – Symantec’s Stupidity

I went to run a full virus scan and noticed that the Norton Security Suite has a completely new look. One of the things that they did right in their past major change, was to have a checkbox option to shut the computer down after the scan completed. Another useful feature was the ability to skip Live Update, since it regularly updates in the background.

Well guess what? These boneheads have removed the shutdown option and the skip Live Update option. Truly clueless.

Hopefully, they’ve fixed the problem where the background scan starts up – even when you are perform a Norton virus scan!!! I kid you not.

And why did they change the UI – again? Keeping the UI the same used to be considered a selling feature because people didn’t need to re-learn the same software. That’s gone out the window these days.
