Norton Toolbar - Safe Search Box Has Disappeared!

Hello all,

Since updating my current Norton (6.1.2.10) and installing the Norton Toolbar, the Safe Search box has disappeared! The Norton Toolbar is still there, but only gives me the option to set up Identity Safe. I've tried clicking on the Norton Logo (as suggested in the Support pages, but no other menu appears. So I'm left with a toolbar, but no Safe Search box!

I really hope someone can help me, as I'm not getting any heads-up on the safety of web pages when I search from a different search engine either.

Thank you!

Welcome TellerMorrow

Can you tell us what operating system and what browser and version you are using?

Things happen. Export/Backup your Identity Safe data.

Hi TellerMorrow,

If you have Norton toolbar on your browser, In Norton Toolbar->Click on the tick mark and check whether you have enable "Norton safe search" option or not?

Hello, and thank you for your replies.

I am using Windows Vista, with IE8. Although, I will be upgrading to IE9 shortly.

Secondly, I wish I could see a drop down menu in regards to the toolbar, but this is all I see! There is not option for a drop down menu, no nothing!

Thank you!

Hi ,

Thanks for the update,

1.Cau you try disabling and enabling addons In IE->Tools->Manage addons->  Select Norton addons and disable those then Restart IE.

2.Now Enable the addons and restart IE then check the issue again.

If possible, Can you check the same issue in different browser(FF11/Chrome)

Thanks,

Senthil

Hi Senthil,

I did as you suggested, unfortunately, to no avail. Secondly, I don't have access to FF or Chrome, so I can't do that either, I'm sorry to say!

Would you recommend an upgrade to IE9?

Thanks for your help!

can you post a screenshot of your Norton Toolbar dropdown menu?

Is search box enabled? Does it look like mine?

Hi Tellermorrow,

Thanks for the update.

Please use Norton remove and reinstall tool to fix this issue. Download Remove and reinstall tool from this location www.norton.com/nrnr and  follow the instructions which are mentioned there.

Before using the tool  take a backup of Identity safe data

Export Idsafe data to .DAT format ( Go to N360 main UI->Settings->Identity Protection->Log into identity safe->Export data)

Import your Identity Safe data (Go to N360 main UI->Settings->Identity Protection->Log into identity safe->Import data) using .DAT file which you have taken while export

Let us know how it goes?

Thanks,

Senthil
