Annoying Norton Security Features
I've been using Norton (Internet) Security for many years. I like it's protections. However, there are several extremely annoying "features" (a.k.a. glitches).
- When using Google Chrome, the Norton Security Toolbar overlaps the content of the web page that I'm one. Usually not a big deal but for certain sites (Google Maps, for example), it is.
- Because it overlaps important web page controls, if you disable the toolbar without disabling the Identity Safe, the toolbar re-enables. :(
- When I log in to the website into My Devices, it shows the computers with generic names - "Chris-Windows 10-2", "Chris-Windows 7-4", etc... The computer's "name" from System Properties is available because I see it listed on a different page but Norton doesn't use it here, on the page that is supposed to help me with my subscription!
- When using Internet Explorer, I like using the Toolbar and Identity safe. I DO NOT want to use the other features - the Safe Search Extension and the Home Page Extension. I WILL NOT use them. If I TURN THEM OFF, you should not keep asking me if I want to install them. If this requires adding an "Expert Mode" for users who want to disable those things, then ADD it!
There have been other issues that have peeved me about Norton Security. These are the 3 that I can remember at the moment. I'm busy. I have work to do. I can't stop and give user interface advice every time a product disrupts my work. Please address these issues, Norton!
PS. When I tried to add a screen grab to my post, it said, "no .jpgs". So I recreated the screen grab as a .png and the page removed my tags. So I tried to edit the post and it said "Access Denied!!"
