Very bad luck with this, buy with caution,
Purchased NAV12 download directly from Norton.com for use on various Macintosh machines. The download and install was completed initially on a new Mac Pro running 10.7.2.
Downloaded and installed cleanly and relatively quickly. Upon launch the Auto-protect toggles were off and when I tried to turn them on was prompted to use LiveUpdate to update files. LiveUpdate was unable to deliver all files completely, some red, some green. Made a few more attempts, no avail. Still was unable to enable Auto-protect and could not even run a quick scan. The scan engine could not be run at all with the constant prompting to run LiveUpdate (over and over and over, ad nauseum).
Worked with Norton tech for over an hour, nothing we tried worked. Finally gave up, they issued a refund for the subscriptions and I uninstalled using Terminal (because I didn't trust the uninstall utility that was bundled in the download). Support from Norton was excellent though, as they always have been in the past with other Norton products we use. This one was a big waste of time, sorry to say. I bought this with the understanding it was 10.7.x compatible, but apparently there are glitches.
Purchase with caution. Never even got to the older machines with this so cannot speak to older Mac OSX issues.
