Smart Screen Filter IE11 Enable or Not?

Hello,

Just fitted a new HD drive to my desk top PC, and after reformatting can't remember if you are supposed to disable the smart screen filter in IE11. Had a couple of prompts to enable it but have declined as yet till I get an answer on here. Using NIS v.21.6.0.32

Regards all.

I have it enabled and haven't seen any problem.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hi Krusty,

That is interesting what you say but I think I will leave disabled for now, let Norton take care of things as they are.

FWIW, I agree with Krusty13.  I have mine enabled in IE 10, with no problems noted and it was that way on NIS and now on my NSBU install!

Also, I'm not trying to change your mind Brummie, just reporting my experience. 

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hello,

Thanks for the further replies, going by what you are all saying then it does seem to sit well with Norton, I shall enable it then to see how it goes. If I should have any issues with it I will post back to let you know.

Have a good one.

Hi brummie,

Sounds like a good plan of attack - keep us posted if you run into anything that bothers you!

Hi, brummie. I have the Smart Screen filter enabled in IE10, which is supposed to be antiphishing and antimalware when browsing, but the only warning I ever get is from WOT.

Never a peep from IE, or Norton !

Thanks again for the updated messages, so far so good after enabling it.
