Many thanks for trying to help! Anyway, I'm glad to report that they're mostly working at the moment
Yes, I have the very latest Chrome (21.0.1180.79) and NIS 2012 versions available and all settings for Identity Safe and Norton Safe Web are activated correctly. The safe web icons seem to stop appearing regularly more in the evening (I know that sounds crazy but it seems to be the case) so I can only think that it's mainly to do with the volume of web traffic. When this happens, I just stop using Google/Bing/Yahoo etc., and just use the Norton Safe Search toolbar search box where all the site safety icons always appear (although not too keen on using Ask Jeeves as a search engine!). But at least I know I'm not going to click on an unsafe web link...

Sorry could not help further. Although I did like what you said about the Norton Safe search. I always forget about that search option because so far I've had good luck with Yahoo and Google searches.
** knock on wood **
So far the site ratings icons always show, but if I start having trouble in that area, I'll enable the Safe Search. Thanks for the unintended nudge.
Kudos to you ...

Well, as predicted, my safe site icons are now failing to load a lot of the time! (it's early evening, coming into peak internet traffic time in the UK). The icons were loading almost 100% of the time this morning when I did some sample Google searches, but not any more, so I shall now be switching over to the safe search box (Ask search engine) in the toolbar for any internet searches this evening...

FYI: I noticed one time that Norton Safe Search (Ask) gave me a question mark (?), a greyed out Norton icon, on one of the top search results. I thought "WHAT?"

I didn't have the exact same problem, but I fixed a problem I had with Chrome by this:
Go to chrome://plugins/
scroll down to Norton Confidential and check 'Always allowed'.
If it wasn't checked for you, maybe it will help to check it.
