Hello and welcome. You should completely uninstall Norton and just use Windows Defender.

Welcome to BC....

 

Did you get that notice when visiting here at BC?

 

Does this happen when using other browsers?

 

EDIT: Try disabling Norton safe search if it is active. It is not necessary and likely will show

ads in Search results because it is actually ASK.

I use Norton and don't have this trouble when visiting cnn.com or anywhere else regardless of which browser I'm using and I don't see any reason to get rid of Norton unless you're generally unhappy with the program. This is what Symantec says about Malicious Domain Request 2

 

Malicious Site: Malicious Domain Request 2: Attack Signature - Symantec Corp.

 

Going by another thread I've seen here, you're not the only one with this difficulty

Perhaps buddy215 will suggest that you do something similar?

Did you disable Norton Safe Search per How to Disable Norton Safe Search | Chron.com ?

 

Use these programs to clean and remove adware and malware. If you still get the warning follow the last set

of directions for starting a new topic in the malware removal forum.

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of Google Chrome and Avast.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

Allow these programs to remove what they find: Malwarebytes    AdwCleaner   Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scan from ESET | ESET

If Norton interfers with the installation and scanning using those programs....shut it down and restart it after all scans are finished.

 

Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.

  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.

When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.
 

DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.
