I might have answers for few of your questions.
1.You would get "Safety minder disabled" message/alert in the child's activity list if
the safety minder service was disabled by an admin privileged
2. Currently Norton is running a sort of school signup program, through which if the product is registered and used.the service comes as free for the life time. though there is a contest and prize associated for schools in the US geography, being in Australia if you signup the service comes as free, though you might not be eligible for the contest.However you can consider/recommend the school to visit this link
(found this out while trying to help a friend of mine to register :) )
for the other queries you had, i will come back to you once i use the product more and find more :)

Thank you very much for your thoughtful feedback. I’m glad to hear you find the program useful and enjoy using it.
1. If the children have Administrator rights on the PC they use or they have the parental email address and password that you use to log onto OnlineFamily.Norton website, they are able to uninstall or disable the program. Yes, Norton Safety Minder uses the LiveUpdate mechanism.
2. If your son has Administrator rights on the PC, he would be able to create an unmonitored account and do other things to make his online activities not being monitored. Being in Australia shouldn’t be the issue here.
3. Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll put this to our enhancement list.
4. Our development team is looking into this. I’ll post an update here as soon as it becomes available.
5. I will add it to our enhancement list too.
