How to remove alert and stop the auto-fix prompt?

There's an annoying alert exclamation in the systray, telling me "Your browser is not set to detect fraudulent Web sites." There's only a "fix now" button on the dialog, there's no "stop bugging me about that" option. I don't need you to do so, as you'll too often bar good sites and make it hard for me to get to them.

How do I shut off that alert so that the exclamation mark only shows up when something real happens?

It's not a safe surfing issue. When I open the main panel, the exclamation mark is on Identity. When I click on that, as I said in the original post, there's just a Fix Now button. There are four choices below that, Identity Safe, ID Settings, Statistics & Password Generator. None seem appropriate, when I click on the first three, nothing happens at all, there's no need to click on the fourth.

When I do go check safe surfing, the Security image says "You are protected," and on the Advanced tab, Safe Surfing is  already turned off.

Silly question - have you ever clicked on Fix It Button nd what happened?

Is this what you are seeing?

Please check the following setting is set to ON - that should fix it - remember the APPLY.

No, and I'm not going to. I don't want it to "fix" the non-problem and don't trust it. I need to hear details from Norton.

Please let us know what Norton tells you - as I still believe your non-problem might be a setting you have changed from the default setting and may end your non-problem.
