I have a new PC running Vista Home Edition and the latest version of IE. This PC has a trial version of Norton. Each time I load a page like my bank or credit card I have to answer the security questions. It says it doesn't recognize this computer. Any thoughts?

Remove Norton. It is bad. Get AVG or Avast.

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool

Agree with both of these. AVG if you want a very good free AV, or Nod32 if you do want to pay for one, but I think Nod is worth it (my opinion).

Very possible. Are you allowing cookies as well?

It could be Norton. It could be what Carnage said. It could just be a security measure taken by the bank to prevent fraud and theft of your account.

If anything i wouldnt complain. It is security to make sure it is you and that is something that is hard to trace or even use a keylogger for. So at least you know your account info is safe. If you were ever to get infrected with a virus or worse.
