Internet security

Suddenley the yellow Lock symbol is not appearing on the status line when accessing e.g., a bank web site using password etc. However, the 'httpS://...' is displayed .

The Norton Internet Security is enabled.

Is this still secure or should I stop using such web site until this is sorted out?

Normally displayed beside the refresh button on top address bar.

Yes mine is still working, try your bank again,And if the yellow lock symbol does not appear, I would start running My Anti-Virus + Spyware programs.

NO, The lock should appear on the status line at the bottom of the scrren

Have you upgraded to IE 7,its on the address line of your browser.

My apologies.
I was looking at the wrong place where pre-IE7 used to display.
I am on IE7 and it's o.k.

Thanks all.
