Nis2009 is not preventing me from entering sites with a cross next to it which means bad. Help?
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.)
