Huh? Did you disable all components of Norton?

The person relied above me seems to be right.
The phishing filter of norton, which integrates itself with the browser, causes a lot of problem. I personally prefer MOZILLA FF. Which works smooth and absoulutely fine.

In reference to the problems with Norton360 Phishing filter when using IE8
A friend of mine asked me to 'fix' his computer because he was getting error messages from Norton360 after upgrading to IE8. Something to the effect of: "You are not protected, Norton cannot detect fraudelant websites or authenticate legitimate websites."
I discovered the fix is to Disable IE8's 'SmartScreen Filter' in the Tools menu of IE8
And then to Enable Norton360's Phishing filter in Nortons Setting area.Reboot.
Basically IE's phishing filter is not compatible with Nortons phishing filter.

Might not be Norton or the 64 bit OS at all. IE 8 is a mess. I've used it for months and had nothing but problems with it. I've used it through the BETAs and the RCs. With the release version it crashes every time I shut it down and on one user account the security features aren't working at all, mine. Currently I'm on my second clean install of it and it still has problems. In there own best interest they better roll this one back into the hanger. It's no where near ready to fly.
I'd make that call.
I'm using Windows Vista Business x86.
