NIS 2009 will not prevent you going to sites marked with the white X in the red circle. That is just a warning. If you choose to ignore it, that is up to you. You can, however, turn on Unsafe Site Filter. That will remove those sites from the search results.

Keep in mind that unsafe site filter is a feature only available if you use the new norton safesearch search engine. It can be used either via the norton toolbar, IE8's search box, or at safesearch.ask.com

 

NIS will only physically prevent you from going to a site if it detects phishing.

 

Even though this seems bleak, keep in mind how much NIS protects you when you are browsing the internet. Between intrusion prevention, sonar, auto protect, and the firewall alone you are more than covered for most sites. (Though it is still important to use common sense and stay away from sites marked with a red x.)

Excellent points Pexley. Thanks for filling the gaps.
