Looks Like It's a Norton Issue.. You're Not Alone..

See the links below about others with your problem.. It looks like if you set the scan for tracking cookies to "Ignore", the error goes away but doing so is definitely a "work around" not a fix. No trued fixes that I can see EXCEPT to uninstall Norton and use a different antivirus program:

There's a long thread at this Norton link about it:

Hope this helps.

So It's Working Correctly Now?

In reply to: norton

Did you disable the scan for "Tracking cookies" per the advice given? Such was the "fix" suggested

Just curious...
