How do I stop Norton attempts to install ask.com as my search engine?

Norton Security claims that my security is at risk, but I'm comfortable with Chrome tools, and I hate the Ask.com search engine..  The repeated Norton notices of "Browsing at Risk" are very annoying.  How can we stop the irksome notices?

Hello Gem4skis. Do you have Ask . com set within Chrome as your default search engine? You can remove it following the article I linked in case you don't know how.

Hello Gemforskis

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum

You are getting the Ask.com Search engine because you are using Safe Search. If you disable the Safe Search, then you can use the Search engine that you want. You can change your default Search engine to Google if you want.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.
