Norton Safe Search – now OK

I recently posted a link to this blog and someone told me they were alerted by Norton that it was an unsafe site. I filed a dispute with Norton they removed the rating and declared it safe:

It’s really annoying to find that I’m the victim of a mindless and inaccurate algorithm. I wonder how many people have avoided my blog or links to it due to this?

    Good Afternoon Russ, the notice to some subscribers about your blog been unsafe by Norton is one of the reasons that I have stopped using them. I used Norton for years as my go to safety spotter on the internet. Now I use Malwarebytes and I get fewer notices. Just too many hits on Norton.

    Bob, I’m glad to hear you found the solution for you. I use Malwarebytes sometimes, too, but it never finds anything. Windows Defender really does the job in my experience. My son is a software engineer and used to work for Microsoft. He has confidence in it and has told me I really don’t need a virus checker.
