    "[Updated on 9th August: Earlier this week, we had halted the throttle of Norton Security 22.18.0.213 due to an in-field issue which resulted in Norton user interface failing to open after the upgrade, in some systems.

    This issue is fixed now and patch is re-posted.

    Note: This is a throttled release."

    Windows 7/Windows 2008 R2 updates that are only SHA-2 signed are not available with Symantec Endpoint Protection installed

    I believe this may also affect Norton Security for home users too.
