Hey Guys n Gals
Well, i had an issue sometime last week regards the updates and safe web. Not sure if anyone remembers but the updates starting working fine by themselves. The issue with the Safe Web feature tho is worse, and now the icons on Google do not appear at all now. I can refresh the page a million times, and yet the icons, letting me know if the pages are safe, will not show up. Unlike before, when at least they did, after one refresh of the page. My Windows 7 is fully up to date, and my NIS 2011 is fully up to date as well.
Its kinda starting to irritate me now. Any suggestions other than uninstall and reinstall as i really shouldnt have to do so for a program to operate as intended.
Edit: Maybe i should add that to access the web i use google as my homepage (www.google.com) and when i click on IE8 it opens me up there. When i type in the Norton Safe Web Browser the icons do seem to work just fine. The same goes for ask.com and bing.com. Is it just a google/norton issue?

Hi Send OfJive
I dont see any options on the google page that will allow me to change what you suggested.
Results page - next to the search bar. You need to do a search.

I just checked and i cannot seem to find that option under the preferences.
Is there anything else i can do to try and solve this?. Ive disabled the addons under IE8 and rebooted, then re enabled them and it doesnt do anything.

I just checked and i cannot seem to find that option under the preferences.If you don't want to see results as you type, you can turn off Google Instant by clicking the link next to the search box on any search results page, or by visiting your Preferences page.I note that your image does not display Instant is on.
FWIW... I tried w on & w off ...no change to SafeWeb icons. SafeWeb icons display with on or off (for me)
I'll loose SafeWeb icons if I block google scripts

Well, as its still not working, and no one has the remedy i will have to change my homepage to Bing.com. The safe web feature seems to work fine under that, so thats what im going to have to do. I guess its not a big problem. Just more annoying thats all, as it used to work fine under google, but not anymore.
Thanks for trying.

I wonder, have you considerd reload google search http://www.ieaddons.com/en/searchproviders
For testing purposes please confirn IE Settings at default....
I can reproduce your issue by hardening IE Security away from default...
