NIS Safe Web is not Working for IE, Chrome or FireFox (missing green-ok/red icons in google search)
NIS version: 18.104.22.168
OS: windows XT sp3
Norton Protection: 2013.3.3.19
Chrome browser: 26.0.1410.64m
Search engines: Google & Bing
1. ran liveupdate & quickscan
2. checked Norton safe web site was up and working by using the "Norton/ASk" search function
3. does not work using BIng or Google
4. ran NIS autofix
This function quit working about last weekend (5/12/13). This function always comes and goes but it has not worked for three days.
Since I have checked the function with three different browsers (Chrome, IE, & Firefox) and about 5 machines (XT laptop, Windows 7 desktop, and windows 8 tablet) with the same results, I believe this is a Norton software function problem.
I have checked with other Norton NIS owner at different locations and they reported the same problem (NO safe web or a safe web function that happened briefly after about 20 searches).
One of the reason to get NIS was the safe web function -- if it is not working, a big part of NIS to help user in safe surfing is missing.
--- Why cannot Norton indicate when the safe web site is down for the user?
--- Why is NIS safe web function alway so undependable? (works, next search doesn't, then works, etc.) seem like a very flakey or buggy NIS function
--- When will this "glitch" be fixed?
