Turning on or turning off Alert on Poor Stability

When you turn on the Alert on Poor Stability option, Download Insight prompts you to select a suitable action when you try to download an unstable file.

When you set the Show Report on Launch of Files option to Never, Download Insight does one of the following:

  • Does not prompt you to select a suitable action for any type of file that you download if the Alert on Poor Stability option is turned off. The Download Insight window does not appear whenever you try to open any downloaded file.

  • Prompts you to select a suitable action when you try to download an unstable file if the Alert on Poor Stability option is turned on. Norton Internet Security identifies unsafe files as security threat and removes them.

By default, the Alert on Poor Stability option is turned off.

  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click the Web tab.
