Useless. Immensely and inescapably useless. I was looking some pictures of Dartmoor, and clicked onto click here, and Norton turns round and tells me that I am not allowed on it because it is an "alcohol website"! I ask you! I couldn't decide whether it was more or less ridiculous than it's preventing me from accessing a recipe for chocolate butter cream because it thought that it was also an "alcohol website".
Norton was definitely my favourite antivirus software before they installed Safety Minder on my PC without my permission. Why doesn't it just keep to maintaining my computer's virus-free state, instead of stopping me access perfectly acceptable websites?
I have tried to turn it off, but it will not let me. I managed to uninstall it once, but rebooted my PC to find that it had reinstalled itself. It is not necessarily the fact that it is running on my PC, it's merely the fact that it has ridiculous "views" on different websites.
Norton Safety Minder is the newest version of Norton Online Family. This option is a feature that is not installed by default. If you decide to install it, then you have to configure it to allow the different right for the different Windows account you have.
Here is the link on how to configure the Norton Safety Minder: click here
And here is a page where there is a video to check what Norton Safety Minder is about: click here
Whenever you want to disable Norton Safety Minder, there is an icon in the “icon tray”, right bottom corner and you can right-click on it and choose to disable it.
I hope this can help.

Hi, I want to ask I've got norton saftey minder and it works ok when using google searches - however when go on to youtube it doesnt seem to work as it allows videos which have nudity / adult content but wouldnt be classified as porn - is there anyway to configure it to block these types of videos rather than block the site?
I have got the settings on it to block Lingerie, Mature Content, Pornography, Sex Education and Sexual Orientation on but you would think this would block videos which have some nudity / adult content but wouldnt be classified as porn?
Any advise? Has anyone heard of k9 web filter and is this free / safe to use?
