Remove devices from the Network Security Map

Jun 11, 2010

The Network Security Map window lists the devices that are connected to your network. You can remove a device or a computer from the Network Security Map. You can purge all devices from the Network Map and create a new list of devices.

For example, you can purge all the devices that were present in your previous network before you connect to a new network. Ensure that you disable Remote Monitoring before you purge the Network Map. Norton Internet Security cannot purge the Network Map when the Remote Monitoring is turned on. Also, ensure that you close the Network Security Map window before you purge the Network Map. You cannot purge the Network Map when the Network Security Map window is open.



Note:

Norton Internet Security purges the devices that you add manually in the Trust Control network depending upon their trust level. It does not purge the devices that have a trust level as Full Trust or Restricted.
When you remove an individual device, the online devices appear again the next time you open the Network Security Map. However, Norton Internet Security permanently removes the offline devices.
To remove an individual device
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Network pane, click Network Security Map.
  2. In the Network Security Map window, do one of the following:
    • To remove a device that is on your network, in the Network Map, click the device.
    • To remove a device that you manually added, in the Network Details drop-down list, select Trust Control, and then click the device.
  3. On the left side of the Network Security Map window, under Total in Network, click the minus symbol.
  4. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.
To purge the Network Security Map
