How do I disable a false "Issue" warning?
The Norton tray icon now has a overlapping red circle with a white X in it.
- Clicking the icon opens Norton where it states:
"You are at risk ~ Your browser is not protected from intrusion attempts."
How do I disable and/or hide just the ..."browser is not protected..." warning without affecting other issue notices?
It's like PUPs, or is it PUAs this month?
Thank you for your help - the rest is background information for whatever...
Windows 7 Premium 64

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti
Possible Side Effects:
- Phone support suggested that Norton has bundled their browser protection with anti-virus as part of the program/application/software/appi. If so then the Warning will remain a false positive since I refuse to have something I didn't buy, don't want and don't need being forced upon me. I'd like to be notified/warned when REAL issues arise like detecting changes to the settings, a Trojan, or virus, et al.
- Ignoring the warning may have another real warning about a serious issue along with it, and Norton, not a boy, would appear to be crying wolf.
- For a company offering/forcing browser protection, it has a odd way of showcasing it's own security - my browser has blocked 8 Stalkers on this forum. I'd rather wrap my monitor in cellophane and call it safe-surfing.
[Sidebar] This "Issue" has appeared now on three out of the 5 devices presently using Norton Security. The "Issue" warnings are recent. I've been with Norton since it's DOS version of Disk Doctor.
It's been said, (well sort of) that you can't pick your relatives, but you can pick your anti-virus.
I HATE when I type in a lot detail and and click SUBMIT to have to type it all over again... GET a decent Forum script Norton!
Recent studies have shown that too many people do not read to the end of anything
