A Couple Of Queries ?

  • I have noticed that when N360 scan removes the cookies, that they have my surname@xyz etc.

    Anybody out there shed any light on where they get my surname from, on the cookies ?

  • "Early Load". Does it have to be restored to "OFF", when you upgrade to a new build level or equally uninstall/reinstall the software.

 

Happy New Year. AK

I can answer your first question. It's your Windows login name. This is only internal with the browser on your computer; the site you visited does not have the information, nor is it sent to them. Explanation:

Hi photo762,

No, you don't have to turn off early load when uninstalling or reinstalling your Norton product.

And as Bombastus said, the cookies obtain your name  via your Windows login name.

Your Norton Ladybug.

But... you will probably have to turn it back on anyway since the default setting on the new installation will be to have Early Load turned off.  Your preference to enable Early Load will not be retained from the old version.
