Norton question

by user429 / October 5, 2006 12:10 PM PDT

I have Windows XP on my computer. About two or three times a day I get for no good reason a balloon-type screen which states "Norton Status Good. Installed Programs Are Working Properly". This screen is a nuisance. How would I get rid of this screen permanently? Thank you very much,

What version of NSW? Have you checked in the software's Options or Help file?

See the Norton picture with the green tick next to the system tray? Every time you start-up your computer, that little pop-up will come up, just close it. But if it comes up will your doing your own stuff, it is because you are accidentally clicking that yellow button. If this still annoys you, right-click the yellow bar that says 'Norton' with the green tick, and select 'Move Norton Status to System Tray. This makes the icon on the system tray, which means is smaller, thus not as easy to accidentally click on. There's really no nuisance to it, so I don't see why you care so much. It's simple just click 'Close'.
