Wow, Norton is getting more and more aggressive with the pop up offers and nags to set up features that I DON'T NEED. It is getting worse and worse. And I am GETTING SICK OF IT.
I have used Norton for a lot of years. One of the original benefits was that it stopped the flood of pop ups if you went to the wrong site. Now I am seeing FREQUENT pop ups from Norton with no apparent way to turn them off.
I have turned off the special offers notification.
How many time does Norton have to start my browser WITHOUT MY CONSENT because I don't use the Norton search engine? Can Norton please learn from my first 10 answers of NO??? Or at least let me turn them off. The stupid pop ups happen when I am doing something, so it CHANGES THE ACTIVE WINDOW in the middle of typing. HOW MISGUIDED IS THAT????
So how do I turn off these unsolicited prompts for setting up features I already know about, and don't want or need?
And while we are discussing this, how do I turn off unsolicited and misleading marketing masked as warnings at the end of a smart scan. How many times do I need to say NO to "warnings" that my info is on online phone directories, etc? I know about them, and I also know that any contact info is years out of date, and is all completely wrong, so is not a threat at all. So the warnings are completely misleading, and after seeing them over 10 times and still getting the warnings I am getting sick of them.
Honestly, does anyone buy these products after the 10th or 20th nag???
So, a suggestion to Norton --- realize that your customers are NOT captive to your advertisements within your program. You will drive us away as you get worse and more persistent. I am seriously considering trying BitLocker for the first time --- that seems like the easiest way to solve this annoying problem!
I would appreciate any suggestions on how to turn them off.
