Norton Safety Minder disconnected

I see that there have been questions about this before so I apologize for asking again.

I get regular email warnings that say either (for a certain user) that "Norton Safety Minder is not running [Family PC]" or "Norton Safety Minder has been disconnected. Monitoring unavailable [Family PC]".

Looking at previous answers, I have double checked the user set up and the children are set up as "standard users" - I can't see any other security/access options (Windows 7).

I don't believe that they know my password.

Anything else I can check?

What exactly do these messages mean (the alerts screen gives no further information)?

Thanks.

Hi AndrewL,

Please check to see if the IE or Firefox plugin was disabled by going to the tools/manage add ons menu for IE and tools/add ons menu for Firefox.

Thanks,

What does that mean: "Please check to see if the IE or Firefox plugin was disabled by going to the tools/manage add ons menu for IE and tools/add ons menu for Firefox."?

Is there a plug-in that must be disbled? If so, which one? What if my kids use Chrome or Safari?

Thanks
