To start Norton AntiVirus from the command prompt

  1. At the command-line prompt, type the directory where Norton AntiVirus is located, and the executable.

    • In 32-bit version of Windows, Norton AntiVirus and the executable are located at the following path:

      \Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\Engine\version\Uistub.exe

      Where version represents the version number of installed Norton AntiVirus.

    • In 64-bit version of Windows, Norton AntiVirus and the executable are located at the following path:
