What is Norton HSPlayer?

The Norton Premium Services & One-Click Support Player, more popularly known as hsplayer.exe, is a component of the Norton Internet Security (NIS) package and is most concerned with the update of the Norton suite through the Internet. This service searches through the Norton servers with updates and patches for the installed applications in the Internet Security package, and if there are, notifies them (depending on the automatic update configuration of the user), or downloads and installs them. The most common error for this service is that when hsplayer.exe tries to connect to the Internet but couldn’t, mostly because of the user’s firewall blocking its access. To work around this, an exception for hsplayer.exe must be included in the firewall’s exception list.

The Norton Internet Security holds the largest market share in the retail security software list, boasting about a 61% market share in this field. The Internet Security suite features malware protection using advanced heuristics and virus signatures, and includes such features as software firewall, anti-phishing measures and e-mail protection. More comprehensive than the Norton Anti-Virus line, its newer versions also run faster with minimal memory footprint, in response to Norton’s previous products slowing the computer greatly.
