Safetyminder in Norton safe search does not block unsafe sites from showing up
Today I ran some tests with Norton's SafteyMinder to see if it effectively blocks what I don't want my kids to see. So I ran a few common nasty word searches in google, yahoo, live/bing, ask, norton toolbar, altavista etc. Surprisingly all engines above except for norton safesearch toolbar, ask and altavista, I got a 1 line msg saying safe search is on, and I felt good. But norton safesearch toolbar, ask and altavista showed all the resutls!!! I did have the safe search on for this test user, for who I set an age of 10 years. But still these search results showed up. I think Norton should do better in preventing any of these search results from even showing up. Trying to enter of of these nasty sites is blocked by norton, but I think that is not enough, Norton needs to filter the search results too. Please advise if this can be configured.
