I was actually referred here by the NIS forums site. It seems I have a problem that the users over there say are best remedied by coming over here.
Here's what I posted on the NIS forums site:
""Hello, I am not very tech-savvy so I hope these questions are not too embarrassing.
When I open my browser, the normally green "https" indicator for secure sites is no longer green (banking, job-search sites, etc...) Is this because of a Norton program acting as a buffer? Not even my PayPal log-on page shows green...very disheartening.
Also, I use the "Boot time Protection" feature in settings, but every time I restart my computer, it is switched to the off position when I re-open Settings.
I am running Windows 7 and use IE10 and Firefox as browsers. Any suggestions?
I have run all my security programs: all the Norton 360 Spyware/Malware; Spybot S&D; even the Windows security features.
I am running Windows 7x64 SP1 with NIS 360.
So, any ideas?
