Does Norton Internet Security 2010 disable the IE8 Protected mode? I have the Protected mode on checked by default, yet with Norton on, my browser says Protected Mode: Off in the status bar.

Found the problem: I had set UAC to bottom (do not notify) and that causes IE to show "Protected Mode: Off". Setting UAC to any higher setting returns the "On" to IE in Windows 7.
