Keeping browsers happy with extensions

Hi, all.

In view of the many problems people have been having with toolbars and extensions recently, may I suggest that if you turn off your systems at night, that you make a habit of running Live Update manually when you log on next day.

That way, you are sure of being fully patched BEFORE you update your browsers, and that there's a better chance that everything will work as it should.

Rebooting fixes a lot of issues and if you're a Windows 8 user, remember that Norton requires a complete shut down, to properly update.

Re: Keeping browsers happy with extensions

I shut down every night and have been using the practice of manual LiveUpdate upon Logon every morning since I came back to Norton in 2009!  I feel it is a good practice also!
