Compatibility of Norton products for Mac with 64-bit kernel

Following are the Norton products that support the 64-bit kernel mode in Mac:

  • Norton AntiVirus 12 for Mac

  • Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac**

  • Norton Internet Security 5 for Mac

  • Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac**

** 64-bit kernel mode support is added to Norton AntiVirus 11 for Mac and Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac with the latest updates available through LiveUpdate. Run LiveUpdate to download and install all the available updates for your Norton product. You may need to run LiveUpdate multiple times to make sure that no more updates are available.

While using 64-bit kernel mode in Mac OS X with Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac installed, you may see the message "Information Guard is not supported when Mac OS X is started up using the 64-bit kernel" on the Norton Confidential window.

For more information, read: Message: "Information Guard is not supported when Mac OS X is started up using the 64-bit kernel" is displayed on the Norton Confidential window in Norton Internet Security 4 for Mac

Thank you!
