A while back, Norton didn't play nice with MBam. I don't know if that may still be an issue or not.

Thanks Jacee. The restart appears to fix the error message. Maybe there was some default option selected to automatically update Norton that I was unaware of but I am still very unimpressed that Norton didn't even advise that a significant automatic update would happen. A user may wonder if "Norton" has been hijacked.
I did run a patch which is requested from time to time. This time this is possibly what happened:
Look at this gem from Norton quote:
"When will I receive the patch?
As is our standard practice, we are deploying the patch in a phased manner. We have released the patch to randomly selected customers, and will then monitor our telemetry and forum feedback for any problems or issues. Once we have confirmed the effectiveness of the patch, we will make it available to all customers. We will post an update on the Norton Community Forums when we make the patch available to all customers."

Give me a break This doesn't win you customers Norton.

I think we've all used Norton/... paid for a-v's at one time or another
With all of the good/ free offering and the facts malware is todays most used attack method I'd just save the money and put it elsewhere

With both of them causing as many BSODs as each other I'll stick to F-Secure.

As an unsolicited Beta tester for the new Norton I am seeing it pick up a lot more potential "threats" from low to high threat. They look like false positives to me but wouldn't really know.

Yea paid for version antivirus programs usually find more stuff closer to renewal
Try to prove themselves as a relevant product to keep.
Been there and not doing that again
