Norton family - can't get on internet
Posted: 13-Oct-2022 | 1:34PM · 1 Reply · Permalink
I have tried installing Norton Family on my new laptop (setting up as a "child") but afterwards I can no longer access the internet. Strangely, the Norton Family browser extension didn't automatically install, and I had to do this manually.
Once installed, I can't then uninstall the product - the window just says "Initialising" but does nothing, I suspect because it needs an internet connection.
I think the problem is to do with my Antivirus/firewall, as disabling this seems to cause the internet to work again (although not always!).
Has anyone else experienced these issues?
My antivirus/firewall is ESET Internet Security, which was installed by my IT Consultant.

Thanks for reaching out to Norton Family forum.
The functionality of the Norton Family will be disrupted when it is used along with third-party security products as mentioned here.
We would recommend you to install Norton Security along with Norton Family instead of other third-party security products.
