I have Norton parental controls installed on a child's laptop. However I often get an email from Norton stating "The Norton Family browser plug-in was turned off on: <<PC-Name>> - Mozilla Firefox Can I prevent the plug-in being disabled?

Hi,

I think it should work if you edit the access that your child have on their profile.

Start > Control Panel > User Acounts and Family Safty > "There you shold be able to set up a security, so they can't change the Norton program.

Not sure if this was exactly what you looked for, but it could work.

Hi John,

I see that, thanks for inform me. I will add my website in my profile instead, do you know if it's do-follow or no-follow? John99 said

I am not absolutely sure, but as far as I know: Profiles are indexed by search engines. In the forum open solved question threads are indexed, but unsolved threads are not indexed any longer. That changed a year or so ago as it was reasoned solved threads were the useful ones that people needed to be able to find. I imagine inactive archived threads are also no longer indexed.

Can I prevent the plug-in being disabled?

Per this Norton Support thread - http://community.norton.com/en/forums/browser-plugin-disabled-email-notifications - "The Norton Family program still logs Web activities and also blocks websites when the Norton Family extension is disabled."

It goes on to say that "The disabled functions are: Social networking, Safe searching, Video monitoring (for Premier users), & HTTPS web monitoring." Doesn't mention Parental Controls being controlled by the Browser Plugin.

You should check with Norton to verify the veracity of that.
