Norton Security wants to install 'Safe Web/Antiphishing'
Norton Security wants to install 'Safe Web/Antiphishing' Is it safe and will it slow down my PC? I am on Windows 7 Pro with Firefox 67.0.4. I have use Norton for years and it has stopped me from getting to hijacked sites on several occasions. I did see a post here about Norton Safe Web on Windows 10 where they recommended Windows Defender and Maiwarebytes. I thought Malwarebytes was sort of adware itself like many of the programs downloaded from CNET, etc.
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
Hi MikeZZ, I've used Norton Safe Web. It is safe to use but, it didn't suit my taste. Try it out - it may be suitable to you.
