    Thankfully I don't even have that option on my desktop PC running Norton. Smart Scan either.

    It's the same for me too, although I have not updated to this new version yet.

    I had stated in the past that it seemed a waste for security vendors to release a new version of their products every year that had been completely reinvented from the previous year because by the time the new version was stable and had the bugs worked out it was time for the new one. I think Norton took this to the extreme though, per the Wikipedia article I just checked it looks like version 22 was released 7 years ago. I'm sure there have been updates but I don't see how this is competitive with other products. 2 or 3 years, fine. 7 years is longer than most devices last.

    If you accept and get a pop up to send anonymous data to Symantec, you can decline.

    I agree. Updating virus definitions is one thing but how much AV technology has advanced to justify an entirely new version when resources are better spent to optimize a current version and fix bugs?
