Norton 360 spam tool bar

footplate1, Nov 28, 10:39pm
The "This is spam" button has become inactive. The other two are OK. I have looked all over Norton and can't see where I can fix this.

any ideas, please?

you have selected a message first

Agree, but it doesn't activate.

If I remember correctly, you can right-click on the Norton icon on taskbar and choose "get support" where you can text chat to Norton. I used to find sometimes with Firefox, the add-ons from Norton would take a few days to work due to Firefox's rapid updates. Another thing to check, I think by right-clicking the taskbar icon, is that you have the latest version of the Norton product. Sorry I am a bit vague as I don't use Norton anymore.

I went back to Norton and am very happy with it. I actually started to ask Support last night - but on another device. Which would have been pointless, had they needed to go into my system.

Norton settings simply confirm I have the spam buttons turned on and there is no mention of one of them being inactive.

Will deal to it next time I am on my aging desktop.

Thank you

Readers may be interested to know that, after three hours with Norton, including two reinstalls, the fault still occurs.

Norton didn't say but I now suspect a sick MS Outlook.

I wish I could blame Windows 10 but, in truth, I don't know.

Use the "Norton removal tool" and completely remove Norton, Reboot a couple of times to make sure its gone, and then reinstall if you wish to continue using Norton

That's what the Norton help desk did in its three hours of direct control of my desktop. The fault still exists.

Download a fresh copy of your browser to desktop,,uninstall your browser then reinstall from fresh version.

I can do but the fault is in Outlook, not the browser - where the Norton tool is OK.

have you tried a repair of outlook/office

footplate1, Dec 2, 10:19pm
I don't think I know how to do this. I'm a bit nervous of, for example, uninstalling Outlook and reinstalling. Have a stack of data in it.

Oddly, the button became momentarily active, yesterday.

have a look in control panel / mail / data files identify where your pst files are located (either my docs or in the appdata folder) and take a copy of each of them

Not sure what version of Outlook you have, and if your Norton product is up to date (right-click Norton on taskbar and check if latest version), but the following might help. 4 pages of discussion but there is an update that might fix if you read the 4th page. Or join the forum and post.

Norton ensured my 360 was up to date, when we had the marathon session.

I am operating Outlook 2007. Same as on my laptop - which is working perfectly. .Will look at chnman's suggestion when I am back home.

I guess I am postponing the decision on when I replace the desktop and the Office software.
