Norton - Update Not Working?

I set up Norton Anti-Virus on a new machine recently and when I did, I noticed that it looked different than the version of Norton running on my other machine. I installed Norton on this other machine probably close to a year ago but I have updated it regularly since then.

So is the problem that Norton Antivirus is not actually updating or if you have an old version they just leave parts of it in tact so it doesn't look completely like the new version?

With this and my last post about Adobe Acrobat - seems like you may want to frequently uninstall and reinstall certain software that may have been affected by malware or viruses.

Perhaps vendors also need a better way for vendors to verify their update process is working.
