Upgrated to 10586.3 with some minor glitches, but found help for them all (Thanks to Brink ) except one.
After shutting down or hibernate, my monitor goes black allmost instantly, but the PC itself is running with very minor HDD activity for about 1 minute, then the HDD LED (what a name for a little lamp!!!) fully glow for about 10 seconds and after that goes another 10 seconds before it finally shut off.
I have read about others having long "shutdown" times after the upgrade, but I have not seen any solution. As I like to pull the plug when leaving my PC, it has become annoying to sit and wait 1½ - 2 minutes after shotdown.
But before deleting that folder, consider that you won't be able to revert automatically to your previous OS version, if you migrated from W 7, for example.
Though if I'm correct, uninstalling Windows 10 and reinstalling W 7 etc with the previous version software and license key, is possible.

Please take my advice with a "pinch of salt" as I'm not an expert and there are probably other ways to speed up the shut down and reboot process.
See what others have to say.

Backup 22.5, download the trial version and install and you'll see what I mean. Norton 360 and Norton Security Premium aka Norton Security with Backup all share similar features and codebase so it's actually similar as confirmed by a Symantec employee. The year number thing is no longer used as what's important is the version number. It's almost like asking for a screenshot of a product that says Norton Security 2016 as it doesn't exist.

The pre-2014 Norton products just might not get future software updates after 188.8.131.52.
The reason I asked about what version the person had installed that Windows 10586 uninstalled was because if you had anything less than 22.5, Windows will uninstall it as it's not Windows 10 compatible. Assuming you reinstall it, you might have a problem with your product key as it will treat the same computer as have already used that key already.

All the above are with manual uninstalls, reinstalls and new installs of Norton 360 Premier, Norton Security Premium 2016 aka Norton Security with Backup 22.5 on Windows 10 10240 RTM over the past two days. Norton 2016 has the same issue with the auto-protect not being able to be disabled, it really depends more on your luck as it doesn't show up right away and whatever it is, they have to fix it as you don't see any other AV have the same issue yet.
