Symantec/Norton released v18.5.0.125 (patch 18.5) Norton Internet Security 2011, Norton Antivirus 2011 and Norton Internet Security Netbook Edition 2011 (Stable/Official Release).

Like before, I installed the new NIS 2011 v18.5.0.125 over the top of my existent version (18.1.0.37), also this time the update was no problem, all previous 2011 settings remained unaltered after the update. The update was accomplished within 1 minute, reboot was required.

Note: all downloads are originating directly from the Symantec/Norton servers, for security reasons I strongly advise only to download from these vendor servers.

Fixes and improvements

– Fixed an issue where Norton Insight might falsely report 0% trusted when Performance Monitoring was disabled.
– Fixed an issue with the Activity Map might not update when Smart Definitions are enabled.
– Improved instances where the Norton AntiSpam Toolbar might be erroneously disabled (or “grayed out”) in Microsoft Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Outlook 2010.
– Corrected an issue where “Custom UI Runtime Error in Norton AntiSpam Outlook Plugin” might display when using Microsoft Outlook.
– Fixed an issue where the option to “run” an executable was missing from a File Insight/Download Insight window.
– Corrected an issue where Idle Full System Scans would show report inconsistent amounts of Scanned Files.
– Fixed an issue where Full System Scans would not run continuously, including when the machine is left idle.
– Fixed an issue where the Norton Product may display “Subscription Expired” after updating from a previous version.
– Fixed Internet Explorer crashes that were due to Intrusion Prevention.
– Performance Enhancements were made on the Norton Toolbar for Internet Explorer 9 Beta.
– Enhanced Settings migration when updating from an older version.
– Usability and Performance improvements to the support experience.
– Added better Norton AntiSpam support for Microsoft Outlook configured with multiple accounts.
– Corrected a few instances of 8504 errors that may appear when the Norton product is launched.
– Fixed a Registry Leak issue that may occur during shutdown.

Important Symantec Corporation Statement

The issues that some users were experiencing where the Norton product would lock up after installing the 18.5 update was due to a definition that was applied after 18.5 was installed. Symantec have since corrected that definition and the issue will not occur.
