Best Ad Blockers- Browser plugins and apps

Your best ad blocking option is to install a browser plugin or utilize a web browser that already has a built-in blocker. Browser plugins or built-in ad blockers can interact with the websites you’re using much more accurately than a standalone program operating on your computer in the background.

Another open-source project, AdBlocker Ultimate is good at removing most ads you might come across. In testing, it was able to dispel ads on YouTube and most display ads on various sites we tested.

When we first tested this product, it struggled with a few ad types. Since then, and after a retest of all the tools on this list, we’re inclined to give this one a perfect score thanks to how vastly it’s improved its blocking capabilities.

  • Free for all time
  • Windows app available for ad blocking across all apps
  • Tool for blocking individual website elements
  • Extensive support for a large number of norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U browsers

Score: 7/7

Works with: Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera, Windows, Android, iOS

2. Stands Fair AdBlocker

This Chrome-only ad blocker is a low-impact plugin that does exactly what it’s intended to do. You can block all types of ads using this plugin, with the most obvious limitation being that it’s only available as a Chrome addon. The Stands Fair AdBlocker is not designed for wholesale ad blocking, although you can use it for that. The company believes in fair advertising and encourages users to whitelist certain ads from different sites.

Thankfully, Stands lives up to its promise of blocking ads. That included the more aggressive advertisements found on Orlando Sentinel, as well as other display ads, autoplay video ads, and ads on YouTube.


  • Highly flexible blocking settings
  • Blocks all types of online advertisements
  • Completely and always free to use

total adblock

We’ve found Total Adblock goes a step further than your typical adblocker. The company’s website states that it blocks ads on YouTube (which it does). But in testing, we also found it blocks ads on other video streaming sites that use free-with-ad models, as well, such as Crunchyroll and Tubi. It even removed the pop-up on Tubi requesting the users’ age, which was a bit surprising. The price might be worth the feature list and functionality, especially given TotalAV lumps in a lifetime norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U to its award-winning product and its PC Tune-Up norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U can read our full TotalAV review here.

4. AdLock

Far from being just a browser plugin, AdLock also offers Windows and Android tools that help block ads across your apps. Its feature set is long, especially for a free adblocker, which helps make it one of the better options on our list for wide-ranging usefulness beyond just blocking ads.

adlock free ad blockers

AdLock is designed to get rid of all forms of ads, and with but one exception, cleared away all of the ads that we tested across a variety of sites. This service blocked every ad on the various websites that we tested for this article, including ads on YouTube and other ad-supported streaming sites.

By default, the tool is designed to block every possible type of ad you might encounter. You can easily whitelist a site by clicking on “Settings” and then “Whitelist”. You’ll also be able to toggle a few additional filter settings in there if you so choose. Chances are, though, that you’ll likely want to leave those alone.

You can download AdLock free here.

  • Removes ads on videos
  • Numerous add-on features, including warning against spam and scam links
  • Can block ads across all apps and browsers through Windows app

Score: 6/7

Works with: Chrome, Safari, iOS, macOS, Windows, Android

5. Adblock Plus

With over 10 million downloads on the Chrome browser alone, Adblock Plus is the most popular ad blocking software around. A free and open-source project from the eye/o, Adblock Plus is the primary source code for many other free ad blockers available to download. free ad blockers

By default, Adblock Plus is not designed to block all ads, only those deemed intrusive or potential malware. The service has a nicely detailed explanation of why it has an Acceptable Ads policy and why this feature is turned on by default. That doesn’t mean you’re stuck with those ads. If you want to turn off the acceptable ads, you can easily do so in GOM Player Plus Crack + License Key 2021 settings.

It blocked most of the ads we found but was among the many ad blockers that couldn’t seem to deal with all of the ads on Orlando Sentinel’s website. That being the case, ABP is exceptionally good, but not a perfect solution.


  • Completely free for all features
  • Provides a “block element” feature for ads that are not automatically blocked
  • Offers language settings
  • Allows you to build custom lists or upload pre-built block lists from third parties


  • Does not work on all types of ads, even with the Acceptable Ads feature turned off

Score: 6/7

Works with: Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, Yandex Browser, iOS, Android

6. Poper Blocker

This plugin has been hailed as the best pop-up blocker on the market by several other tech sites, which is a fair claim, although not necessarily the case from our testing. Poper Blocker works well, and we can certainly recommend it for most ad-blocking. However, it does leave many ads that the top free ad blockers on our list completely block every time.

best pop-up blockers 2019

Both the Chrome and Firefox versions of this plugin work well to block not just pop-ups, but website overlays that are exceedingly common as well. For example, this tool blocks the ad blocking overlay used by Orlando Sentinel, as well as the age verification overlay used by Tubi. If it fails to block an overlay, you can right-click the overlay to remove it. And, as with other blockers, whitelisting is available, as is the option to report when a pop-up fails to get blocked by the plugin.

Poper Blocker hits most of the criteria we look for in a blocker. It’s completely free to use and doesn’t lock any of its features behind a paywall. There’s no sign-up required, so you don’t have to give over personal information to use it, either. The only thing you may be concerned about is the fact that Poper Norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U collects and uses data anonymized — but you can opt-out of data collection services for even more privacy.


  • Completely free to use at all times
  • Advanced overlay blocking features
  • Separate tool for blocking ads that don’t get removed automatically


  • Fails to block ads on videos
  • Does not block every type of pop-up ad
  • Limited features

Score: 6/7

Works with: Chrome and Firefox

7. AdGuard

This tool has made one major improvement since we first wrote our list: It’s now competely free. Where AdGuard once tried to charge for this product, it now provides it for free. Instead, it now has other products it’s trying to sell, including a VPN.

AdGuard does exactly what you want it to do. You can block all of the types of advertisements that we tested, which is positive. It also eset smart security crack 2020 a wide range of adjustable features that make it exceptionally useful for privacy and security, such as anti-phishing, anti-malware, and a cookie destroyer that deletes third-party cookies after an amount of time that you can independently set.

free ad blockers

Since we first tested this product, it’s also been imrpoved on what ads it will block. A restest shows that it blocks all types of ads, including on websites with ads that are often difficult to block.


  • Now free forever
  • A long list of interesting features, including anti-phishing and a cookie deleting tool
  • Prevents tracking cookies
  • Blocks Youtube and other video ads


  • Charges for mutli-platform support

Score: 6/7

Works with: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Yandex.Browser, Windows, macOS, iOS, Android

8. Trustnav Adblocker

Trustnav is an antivirus company developed in Andorra that provides a combination adblocker and antivirus Google Chrome plugin. The antivirus solution, which is premium and costs $1.99 per month, is currently unavailable. For now, you can use the solo adblocker plugin for free.

Trustnav also currently has a “Safesearch” Chrome plugin that’s separate from the adblocker. Be sure to install the adblocker version directly from the Chrome Store.

As far as functionality goes, Trustnav presents a very easy-to-use adblocker with a slim user interface. It’s simple and effective at most things. However, the biggest problem you’ll find with this adblocker is that you can’t adjust many settings. Trustnav lets you toggle whether the adblocker is on or off, whether it is blocking all ads or just some ads, and whether you want to get alerts. Beyond that, there’s no fine-tuning, no real whitelisting, and no way to view all of your adblocking stats outside of how many ads were blocked on the site you’re visiting at the time.

Additionally, we’ve found that this ad blocker is terrible at removing ads on videos. In fact, some video streaming websites even detect its use and disallow you to stream videos if it’s turned on. That’s a big failing for an ad blocker that claims to block ads on videos.


  • Beautifully simple interface
  • Always free
  • Blocks most static webpage ads


  • Fails to block video ads
  • Gets detected by anti-adblocking filters

Score: 5/7

Works with: Chrome

9. NoScript Security Suite

This Firefox-only ad blocker is not so much an ad blocker, but a script blocker. NoScript prevents all types of scripts from loading on your web pages: Javascript, Java, Flash, and a number of other plugins. You can allow certain types of scripts, but the service takes a bit of a heavy hand by default.

noscript firefox

The result is that you’ll block most display ads you come across. This included the aggressive blocking of most webpage advertisements, even the more pernicious types that other ad blockers struggled to stop. However, the biggest limitation of this tool is that it does not block most video ads, and it fails to block many overlay ads. It’s also a more technical tool than most other ad blockers and requires a broader technical knowledge of browser architecture, making it not ideal for average users.


  • An exceptionally granular-level approach to ad blocking
  • Includes features to block other digital threats, such as tracking cookies and cross-site scripting requests


  • Only works on Firefox
  • Fails to block several types of ads, including video ads
  • Not user-friendly for most people

Score: 5.5/7

Best feature: Complete script blocking

Works with: Firefox

10. Opera Browser

If you’re looking for an all-inclusive ad blocking experience without the hassle of plugins, the Opera browser is an excellent source. Opera is one of the fastest and most well-built browsers around and was among the first web browsers to have a built-in ad blocker.

free ad blockers

Opera’s ad blocker also works well. After turning it on in the settings, you’ll find it blocks almost every ad you come across. The only exception I found was that it failed to block the interstitial ads common on Forbes (the quote ad that often pops up before reading an article). Most of the other ad blockers we tested did block that ad from Forbes. That said, Opera blocks every other ad type that we tested, including those on Orlando Sentinel.


  • Built-in ad blocking functionality
  • Easy whitelisting
  • Blocks all types of advertisements
  • Completely free forever


  • Only available on Opera browser (because it is a browser)

As good as it is, and despite the score, we listed this one lower on our list because it’s a limited option. As this is a web browser and not a separate tool that can be used as an extension, it’s ultimately less useful than the other options listed.

Score: 7/7

Works with: Opera

Why are Privacy Badger and Ghostery missing?

You may have heard of the popular ad blockers Privacy Badger and Ghostery. While we like and respect these two ad blockers, neither met our criteria based on how they function. Neither of these plugins is designed to block ads, specifically, but to deny website ads and other website elements that betray user privacy. As total defense rebate - Crack Key For U result, both will block some ads some of the time but are primarily focused on privacy instead of complete security online.

That means you won’t get the kind of Visual Importer Enterprise Crack you might want from either of these plugins. Additionally, they don’t allow you much control over the type of ads they block, given their desire is to allow good ads to pass through and not block all ads wholesale.

Google Chrome Ad Blocker

Despite its bit of scaremongering, Google’s built-in ad blocker does not seem to do much. After putting it through the same tests as the other ad blockers listed above, it allowed every ad through that we could find. The built-in ad blocker is also very limited. Even finding a website where ads were blocked was difficult. And since the Chrome ad blocker is designed to only block certain types of ads, most ads you’ll find are not blocked, especially if they are ads sourced through Google’s own advertising wing.

free ad blockers

It almost goes without saying, but Google’s ad blocker is somewhat of a joke. It might have forced some websites to clean up their act a little bit with more intentionally intrusive advertisements, but you really won’t be able to use to block ads.

Ad Blocker Testing Methodology

Not only are there multiple types of advertisements you might run into, but there are also multiple ways to block advertisements. Ultimately, how an ad-blocker goes about blocking ads does not matter so much as long as it doesn’t complicate your ability to effectively browse the web and doesn’t invade your privacy. Additionally, a good ad blocker will block most types of ads and not just certain types of ads.

When researching the best free ad blockers, we looked for the following criteria:

  • Always free, without a paywall for important features
  • Good user ratings
  • Do not require an account to use services
  • Recently updated (within the past 12 months)
  • Readily available as a plugin for at least one browser or operating system
  • Blocks “display ads” (floating, pop-up, banner, video, static image, wallpaper, text ads)
  • Blocks streaming video ads (such as on YouTube)

We initially also tested for prestitial and interstitial ads (those that load a screen before your content and often include a countdown). However, since Google launched its built-in ad blocker on Chrome and began punishing sites with Google search downgrades for unfavorable ad practices, most reputable sites have reduced or eliminated this style of advertisement.

Google still allows interstitials for a select few reasons, such as cookie usage notifications and age verifications. Where relevant, we identified ad blockers that block interstitial ads, although it’s not a separate rating criterion.

We tested each ad blocker using the same list of sites to and pages to ensure consistency with results. Examples of sites we used for testing include,, YouTube, Tubi, and We focused on sites that norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U a variety of ads to ensure we gathered a broader understanding of each ad blocker’s effectiveness.

We scored each ad blocker a 0-7 score based on those 7 testing criteria.

A note on ad blockers and website revenue

Advertisements come in many flavors, from pop-up ads to on-page advertisements and more. Some websites have even started throwing up a separate page for their ads (such as Forbes) or using autoplay video ads as soon as the page loads.

In general, consumers hate ads for a variety of reasons, including:

  • They can slow down page loading
  • Many are now intrusive and annoying
  • They can use up precious data for those with data-limited internet plans
  • The ads are often irrelevant to user interests
  • The ads may interrupt the browsing or viewing experience (particularly ads on video streaming sites like Hulu or Crunchyroll)
  • Many ads contain tracking cookies that send user behavior back to third parties

The quality of ads has gotten so bad that even Google includes an ad blocker in its Chrome browser now, targeting “substandard ads.” Google’s intentions might be a bit suspect, however, as the company operates a large advertisement wing of its own and likely doesn’t block any Google-sourced ads from AdSense.

Still, thanks to ads, we can enjoy most of the content we watch and read online for free, but ads do have various drawbacks. They can also serve as a vector for computer viruses or third-party hacks.

Before you dive into blocking ads on your favorite websites, we’d like to point out that those websites you’re using often rely on ad revenue to survive. While many websites are now diversifying their revenue streams (often because of increased ad blocker usage), ad revenue is still a major source of income for many websites. The use of ad blockers resulted in an estimated loss of $15.8 billion for websites in recent years.

If you like the services you receive from certain websites that you trust, we suggest you whitelist those sites in your norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U blocker’s settings. Whitelisting is the opposite of blacklisting. Instead of telling your ad blocker to block certain sites, you’re telling it that the list of sites are ones you don’t want to block.

Whitelisting is a good way to help guarantee the sites you like and trust continue to get the ad revenue they need. Even if you never click on the advertisements, many sites get some revenue by page views, making it still beneficial for those websites if you allow their ads to show.

Free Ad Blocker FAQs

Here are answers to some of the most common free ad blocker questions.

What is the best free ad blocker?

Many of the ad blockers on our list work almost equivalently well against almost a5ny advertisement you might find. That said, our list is structured best on usefulness. As present, Adblock Ultimate is our favorite free ad blocker.

What is the best free ad blocker for Windows 10?

Any of the options on the list that have a dedicated Windows app (and not just browser apps), are great for Windows 10. That being the case, Adblock Ultimate, Adlock, and Adguard are solid free adblockers for Windows 10 (and potentially Windows 11).

What is the best free ad blocker for Chrome?

Do ad blockers still work?

All ad blockers on our list have been tested and retested as of the the most recent date on this article norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U the update date at the top of the article). Some ad blockers don’t work, but you’ll find that any ad blocker that has been updated as of the current year likely works to block most or all ads on nearly every website you might visit.

Does Adblock stop viruses?

Yes, ad blockers, such as Adblock Ultimate or Total Adblock can block viruses. Because ad blockers prevent certain page elements from loading, this can also prevent infected scripts from load on web pages or prevent pop-ups with malicious phishing links from showing up on your screen. That said, ad blockers are not an effective antivirus tool. If you need an actual antivirus solution that also has an ad blocker, consider Total Adblock.


Symantec prepares Norton 360 for Australia

Symantec is preparing to launch an online security and backup service in Australia next month, which will directly compete with Microsoft's OneCare Live.

Norton 360 is a diverse security service that along with the usual firewall, antivirus and anti-spam products, also includes an automatic external backup system that is able to encrypt and send users' most valuable files to an external server for safe keeping. The first 2GB of storage is free but users will be able to purchase up to 25GB of space.

According to Matthew Drake, consumer, small business and distribution sales for Symantec ANZ, the tool is designed to automatically backup files without any interaction from the user.

"The product is smart enough to know that when you have new files norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U product will update that to the online service automatically. You just set it and forget it. Once you have done the automatic backup the first time, individual and incremental files will be updated automatically to the online service," Drake told ZDNet Australia in a telephone interview.

Another interesting feature is the PC Tuneup tool, which is designed to keep the users' hard drive optimised by defragmenting and deleting unnecessary files while the computer is not being used -- to minimise the affect on system performance while the computer is in use. This is obviously in reaction to Symantec often being criticised for creating products that are resource-hungry.

Michael Warrilow, MD of Sydney-based analyst firm company, Hydrasight, welcomes the move to improve the user experience and praises the automatic backup feature.

"There is an issue with backup amongst smaller businesses -- backup is important. Most consumers will also admit they don't have adequate backup facilities and putting backups encrypted and online is a good thing.

"So is the performance tuning. If you are going to inflict this performance hit by having a security suite you want to minimise the impact. Let's reduce the cost and performance hit for those that are willing to spend and invest on securing their PC, which unfortunately in the consumer space is still far too few," he added.

Suddenly seeing nothing but a norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U screen and your mouse pointer? Don’t panic! This is a relatively common problem in Windows 10 and, while it’s very frustrating, it isn’t usually that hard to fix.

6 fixes for the Windows 10 black screen with mouse pointer problem

There are six possible solutions for this problem. You may not have to try them all – just work your way down the list until you find the fix that works for you.

  1. Remove battery & long-press power button (laptops only)
  2. Update your graphics drivers
  3. Disable fast startup
  4. Disable integrated graphics card
  5. Log in using a different user account
  6. Reset your PC

Fix 1: IceCream Screen Recorder 6.26 Crack Full Activation Key Free Download battery & long-press power button (laptops only)

If you’re on a laptop:

1) Shut down your laptop.

2) Remove its battery.

3) While the battery is out, press and hold the power button for 60 seconds.

4) Put the battery back in and start your PC again.

If this doesn’t work (or you’re on a desktop PC), try Fix 2 below.

Fix 2: Update your graphics drivers

It’s quite likely that your black screen problem is caused by an outdated, corrupt or incorrect video driver. As updating your drivers is quite an easy task (and something you should do, anyway, for the general health of your computer), it should be one of the first fixes you try.

If you’re good with computers, and you’re confident playing around under the hood, you can update your drivers manually by visiting the manufacturer websites for all your devices and cards, finding the right drivers for your operating system and version of Windows, and manually downloading and installing them.

But if you’re not particularly good with computers, you don’t want to risk installing the wrong thing, or you just want to save a LOT of time, you can update your video driver (and all your other drivers) automatically with Driver Easy. It will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. Here’s how:

1) Restart your computer in Safe Mode with Network.

2)Downloadand install Driver Easy.

3) Run Driver Easy and clickScan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

4) Click theUpdate button next to a flagged graphics driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (you can do this with the FREE version of Driver Easy).

Or clickUpdate All to automatically download and install the correct version ofallthe drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All – the Pro version comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee).

e.g. Here’s a screenshot of the Intel HD Graphics 4400. Your results will show your graphics card.

Fix 3: Disable fast startup

Disabling Fast Startup may resolve the black screen problem. Here’s how to do it:

1) Restart your computer in Safe Mode.

2) Press Control Panel in the search box at the bottom corner of the desktop, and click Control Panel in the pop-up menu.

2) View by “Small icons” and click Power Options.

3) Click Choose what the power button does.

4) Click Change settings that are currently unavailable.

5)  Under “Shutdown settings”, uncheck Turn on fast startup (recommended) then click Save changes .

Fix 4: Disable integrated graphics card

If you have a separate graphics card, your computer may think it has a dual monitor, which can cause the black screen + mouse pointer problem. In this case, disabling the integrated graphics card may fix the problem.

1) Restart your computer in Safe Mode.

2) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the run box.

3) Type devmgmt.msc and click OK.

4) Under “Display adapters”, you’ll see more than one graphics card. Right-click on the integrated graphics card (usually an Intel or AMD graphics card). Click Disable.

5) Restart your PC.

If you’re not sure which one is the integrated graphics one, disable one by one and see if the problem is resolved.

Fix 5: Log in using a different user account

The black screen problem can also be caused by corrupted Windows user profile. If you can log in to Windows with a different user account, and use it without any problems, a corrupted user profile may be the cause. You can then replace the folder of the corrupted user profile with the folder of the working user profile. Here’s how:

1) Restart your computer in Safe Mode.

2) Login with the working user account.

3) Navigate to C:\Users\{working-user-profile-name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Caches.

4) Copy the folder “Caches”.

5) Login with the corrupted user account.

6) Navigate to C:\Users\{broken-user-profile-name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Caches.

7) Replace the folder with the folder from the working user file.

If you don’t have an existing working user account, you can create a new account. Here’s how:

1) Ensure your Windows user account is an administrator. (If it’s not, you can activate the built-in administrator account in Windows and use it to login to Windows. See the instructions further down this page for how to do this.) 


2) Type “settings” in the search box and select Settings.

3) Click Accounts.

4) Click Other people in the left pane and click Add someone else to this PC.

5) Follow the on-screen instructions to create a new user account.

6) Log in to this account and check to see if the black screen problem persists.

Activate the built-in Windows administrator

If, as discussed above, your Windows account is not an administrator account, you can activate the built-in Windows administrator, then log in to that account to create a new user. Here’s how to activate the built-in Windows administrator:

1) Open Command Prompt as administrator: type cmd in the search box. Right click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

2) Type net user administrator /active:yes and press the Enter key on your keyboard.

3) Restart  your computer and you’ll be able to log in to Windows with the administrator account.

4) Create and test a new user account as described above.

Fix 6: Reset your PC

The final solution you can try is to reset your PC. This will reinstall Windows entirely. If you’re not comfortable with resetting your PC, we recommend you contact your PC manufacturer for further assistance.

1) Restart your computer in Safe Mode.

2) Type settings in the search box at the bottom left corner of the desktop, then click Settings in the menu that displays.

3) Click Update & security.

4) Click Recovery.

4) Under ‘Reset this PC’, click Get started. Then follow the on-screen instructions to reset your PC.

Hopefully one of these fixes has resolved your Windows 10 black screen with cursor error. If you have norton safe search box missing - Crack Key For U questions, please comment below as we’re happy to hear of any suggestions and ideas.

The Norton Security Toolbar not only adds a toolbar to your browser, but also alters pages to show whether search results are “safe” or not. You don’t need this feature—your web browser and search engines already attempt to block dangerous websites. Your antivirus will also automatically scan downloads whether not not you use the browser extension. The Norton Identity Safe extension provides a password manager, but we Stellar Photo Recovery Professional Crack Serial Key Download other password managers instead.

We don’t recommend using your antivirus’s browser extensions in general, since they often present problems. We recommend removing them.

In Google Chrome, click the menu and select More Tools > Extensions. Click the trash can icons to the right of the Norton Identity Safe and Norton K7 total security offline activation file crack Toolbar extensions to remove them.

In Mozilla Firefox, click the menu button and select “Add-ons”. Click the “Disable” button to the right of the Norton Security Toolbar add-on. Norton doesn’t seem to offer the Norton Identity Safe add-on for Firefox, so you just have the toolbar to remove.

In Internet Explorer, click the menu button and select “Manage Add-ons”. Select the Norton Toolbar and Norton Identity Protection add-ons under Toolbars and Extensions and click the “Disable” button at the bottom of the window for each.

You’ll be prompted to enable Norton’s browser extensions later, but you can click the “Don’t Ask Me Again” link in the popup and Norton shouldn’t ask you again in the future.

Disable Reports, Background Task Notifications, and Advertisements

The rest of Norton’s settings are located in its interface. To open it, find Airflow 2019 License Key - Crack Key For U Norton icon in your notification area—it looks like a yellow circle with a checkmark inside it—and double-click it. The icon may be hidden behind the up arrow to the left of your system tray icons.

Click the “Settings” link at the top right corner of the Norton Security window.

You’ll see a “Silent Mode” checkbox here, and you can click it to quickly make Norton be quiet. However, Silent Mode isn’t a permanent solution. You can only enable Silent Mode for a day at a time and it will disable itself afterwards.

To find several of Norton’s notification settings, click “Administrative Settings” here.

Norton will automatically show a report every 30 days with information about the actions it performed in the last 30 days. To disable the report notification, set the “30 Day Report” slider to “Off”. Norton will still generate the reports; it just won’t alert you.

You can still manually view each 30 day report by clicking the “30 Day Report” button in Norton’s interface. This button will only appear after Norton has generated a report, so you won’t see it if you’ve just installed Norton.

Norton automatically performs some tasks in the background, including automatic antivirus scans and system cleanup tasks. By default, Norton will display a notification when it’s running these background tasks.

If you don’t want to see these notifications, set “Norton Task Notification” to “Off” here.

Norton automatically displays “special offers” for other Norton products by default. These are essentially just advertisements for other Norton products.

To disable these special offer notifications, scroll down on the Administrative Settings screen and set “Special Offer Notification” to “Off”.

Hide Safe Download Notifications

Norton automatically checks with a reputation service whenever you download a file from a variety of web browsers, email clients, download managers, and peer-to-peer programs. You’ll see a message saying “[File name] is safe” if everything is fine.

These popups aren’t necessary at all. You can disable them and have Norton only alert you if there’s an actual problem.

To disable notifications when you download safe files, click Settings > Firewall > Intrusion and Browser Protection and set “Download Insight Notifications” to “Risks Only”.

Block AntiSpam Popups

Norton includes an anti-spam feature that integrates with desktop email clients like Microsoft Outlook. This feature includes a “welcome screen” that provides you with information and feedback popups. If you just want the anti-spam feature to run silently in the background, you can disable these.

To do so, click Setttings > AntiSpam in Norton’s interface. Click the “Client Integration” tab and set both “Welcome Screen” and “Feedback” to “Off”.

Norton should get out of your way after you change these settings, automatically protecting your PC in the background. You should only see a notification if Norton detects a problem.
