Faster scan speeds, please. Painfully slow compared to alternative products (it took in excess of 4 hours to complete the same 'level' of scan as Essentials did in about 30 minutes.
And PLEASE don't automatically 'tune' my PC without asking first. It ended up deleting files in the my temp internet files folder that I wanted.
DON'T auto defrag - my OS is set not to, Norton should follow its lead. PLEASE, rather than the registry cleaner going straight in and doing its job, include an option to review the actions which it is going to take.
The logs which it builds up are interesting. Kind of. But as with all systems, they seem to collect rather more information than is actually necessary, and give wrong impressions as to how 'serious' a 'threat' actually is. A very well known website stat counter is unlikely to be a 'High' risk.
Norton doesn't recognise that IE is not only not my default browser, but IE has been removed (as far as Windows will allow) in the Add / remove windows components options. Yet Norton says that IE is out of date and should be updated. Not good. Please fix!!
I think those are my only complaints.
