JL is 100% correct.

Fact : in NIS2010 and NIS2011, the IE8 x64 (and probably also IE9 x64 if it exists) browser is totally unprotected by the NIS security plug-ins (anti-phishing, safe web and identity safe functions). This is the reason reason that the Norton Toolbar does not show when an x64 browser is opened.

This has been confirmed by Symantec here:

IE8 x64 Browser Protection using NIS2011 - Norton Community

I strongly recommend reverting to an x86 (32 bit) browser if you still want the NIS browser security plug-ins.

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
