You might be interested in this thread; one of the people who replied had the same problem as you are having;  I don't know whether the fix to the original problem had any effect on your problem:

I tried your advice about changing the temp and tmp environments. It worked for about a second, but then the Red X appeared again on PC Security. Once again, I can't get Norton 360 to fix the problem on its own. If I reboot, the Red X turns into a green checkmark, but then it turns back.

I though I was out of the woods. Any suggestions/

Have you tried this web page:

http://service1.symantec.com/support/norton360.nsf/docid/2007032905201975?OpenDocument&lg=en&ct=us&seg=hho&src=hot
Red X is displayed on PC Security in the Norton 360 program interface and clicking Details shows "Off" next to Auto-Protect

As I continue to research your question, I keep finding pages that mention your problem which are VERY disparaging toward the product.  See this page, for example:

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.
