    Ok, according to this thread PRSC and NAB are the same. Same engine,protection,etc.
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=206970

    both Configuration Version's are at 203.
    So far the same.

    Now for the Product Version.........
    In this thread post 22,23+24
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=183997
    PRSC product version 3.0.0.1443 is the same as NAB version 1.1.838.
    That was over six months ago.
    Now PRSC is at product version 3.2.0.915 and NAB is still at 1.1.838.

    Does anyone know what the differance between PRSC 3.0.0.1443 and 3.2.0.915 is?
    And why NAB has not updated their version like PRSC?
    Is norton draging their feet or is there really still no differance?

    Hello LoneWolf,

    To the best of my knowledge, until proven otherwise, both PRSC v3.2.0.915 and NAB v1.1.838 operate and function the same. The latest version of PRSC primarily consists of bug fixes. Despite having different product versions, both PRSC and NAB share the same file version(14.0.0.166) number on their respective installation .exe files. Interestingly, on the other hand, PRSC's installation .exe file is 10.3 Mb while NAB's is 12.9 Mb. I have no idea why this is. If I had to guess, it may have to do with the difference in GUI's. Lastly, if I find out anything to the contrary, I will update this thread. Hope this helps.


    Peace & Gratitude,

    For those who are interested,

    I was able to confirm that the difference in size between NAB's and PRSC's installation .exe files is primarily due to different GUI graphics.
