    Software Reporter Tool.exe

    I run Nortons 365 so do not want to download this software but it is continually trying to instal itself. How do I stop these attempts to install?

    Software Reporter Tool.exe

    Many thanks for your reply.

    Do I understand that as long as I continue to use Chrome it will continue to try and be downloaded?

    Does in still cause a conflict with Nortons? If not is the easy answer to install it?

    So far I have not installed it I just get sick of it continually asking to be installed.
