Have identity safe and norton safe web turned off as I do not like it taking my browser. At times, I get this popup to turn on Norton toolbar. How do I completely shut it off so I don't get reminded?
Hi, cirrocumulus. No need to disable the tool bar in your browsers. Keep it installed, but just click the X in the toolbar and you won't see it, and you won't be reminded.
You can also un tick it in IE for instance by going to View/Toolbars, and unchecking it.
I use Classic Theme Restorer in Firefox, so I can do the same thing there.
Disregard - sorry!
Hmmm... That didn't work. It removed it and I got another reminder just now.
Oh, that's a nuisance. Did you download ID Safe separately, or is it part of your Norton Toolbar ?
Have you tried disabling it in your browser add on settings, under Tools in your browser Menu Bar ?
The only other thing I can suggest is to go through your Norton Settings, and turn off any notifications you don't want.
Others may have different suggestions.
Thanks again. It's part of the NSwB package. Will monitor if it shows up again. Can't find in settings to turn off this useless pop-up reminder. I don't need to get reminded. I have it turned off.
It just popped up again. I bet there are people like me who disabled Norton toolbar. Are you folks not getting a pop-up to install? I hate it! Distracts to what I am doing.
Hi, cirrocumulus. I just reinstalled NIS on my laptop and after doing Live Update and updating my browsers, I DID get that pop up. I just clicked on No Thanks, and I haven't seen it since !
In my case, Norton Security with Backup will initiate the pop-up at random times/days. I do click on the "X" button (see my pdf in my first post) as that is the only button to close the pop-up.
Hopefully, someone else may have a suggestion. I've uninstalled NSwB for the time being, until the bugs are fixed !
