Could use some help since I am not very computer literate.

About 2 weeks ago I was having trouble accessing the internet. I couldn't figure out what was wrong so I
restored it to an earlier date. The problems I am now having is the sites for my email no longer keep my sign in information even if I check the box to keep my info on file. Signing in every time I want to check email is a pain.

Also, on some sites I may want to print a coupon or open a file and I will get a message that my security settings are preventing it from opening.

Is there a way for me to correct this?

By the way, as I am typing this in the CD forum I am seeing 2 messages that Norton prevented 2 separate trojan attacks. Not sure what that means.

If you have internet problems, try to reboot your router (just do a search if you don't know what I'm talking about).

I suppose you have Norton Internet Security installed, as well as a browser plugin from Norton, which keeps security settings and passwords (somewhere) on file. If you are using Google Chrome as your browser, you should be able to safe your passwords without Norton as well. I don't know about Internet Explorer. It's a bad browser in general.

In regards to the trojan attacks - sounds like bs. If you are not downloading any kind of executables from unknown websites with bad reputations, you should be fine.

Finally I got a reply! Thank you

I am using Norton and Internet Explorer. Sounds like it's not the best to use. My Norton is just about to expire and I am wondering if I should change to something else and also switch to a different browser. Is Google Chrome the best? Any suggestions?

I always have 3 browsers installed: IE, Chrome and Firefox. If one acts up I just use another for awhile.

I use and recommend Norton. I use NIS. I have it on all laptops, tablets, and phones. Firefox on laptops, Dolphin on Android.
