    Hi,

    does anyone else have this issue?

    All chrome website shortcuts in start now lack its icons since the last update, re-creating the shortcut or creating new ones doesn't resolve it.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Edit: I found this thread: Google Chrome and pinning GMail to Start Menu after 1511 - Windows 10 Forums

    seems to be one of the new bugs..
    I have the same problem on my Surface 3 and I use a lot of the Chrome shortcuts on the start menu. I found if you make the tile medium size, the Chrome icon shows instead of the one I assigned to the shortcut. The small tile is just blank. I rolled it back until it's hopefully fixed. I'm a little concerned that the won't do it as it's only effecting Chrome. Does it work if you pin an Edge shortcut? I should havw tried before I rolled it back.

    I'm also getting 2 messages similar to the link below when opening Group Policy Editor after updating to build 10586.

    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 1 - 2 minutes after shotdown.

    Ideas?

    No problems on my end with the new version of windows 10 so far. Norton 360 is my antivirus protection,
    I second the above statement. I'm running W10 on a Dell Inspiron N7010.

    Try Disk Cleanup, it worked for me after the upgrade reinstalled Windows.Old folder files, which in my case was the slow down culprit.
    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.

    I'll try Disk Cleanup and remove old.windows. No problem in going back as I take a full drive backup every week
    Thanks for your advice.

    Meant is was an older product, update or not. Can you find it here under Products and services.
    http://us.norton.com/
    It may be a discontinued product but 2016 just means it's version 22.5 as long for all their security products that came out between 2010-now. There is no such thing as Norton Security 2016 either as the actual product is called Norton Security or Norton Security with 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.

    Norton Security vs. Old Norton Products - Norton Security vs Norton 360 vs Norton AntiVirus vs Norton Internet Security

    The pre-2014 Norton products just might not get future software updates after 22.5.4.24.

    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.

    Windows 10 Threshold 2 Removes Some Desktop Programs During Install - Softpedia

    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.

    Yup.....just a different name, same features, new name is Norton Premium both have same features......no difference....
    They all share the same code base except 2014 and later has additional features.... For now, it's similar but they might not provide updates to 360.

    As long as not having issues like some others were.Basically 360 was last made in 2014, like Internet Security, and standalone Anti-virus
    They are all actually last made in September 2015 as all of the current and the pre-Norton Security 2015 products share similar codebase except the 2014 and later products have more features. NIS, N360 might not get future upgrades to the product itself in the future so 22.5.4.24 could be the end.
