I have defender pro firewall protection, but it wont allow me to see videos or flash images on the internet. I've gone into the allowed applications and added the windows media player but it still doesnt work. i just went into safe mode a ran some scans and logs all the while my firewall was fully disabled, when i came back to normal mode, my firewall was off and i was able to view all the videos and flash images but once i turned my firewall back to medium it no longer works.

It has to be with the way it is presently configured

Ad blocking is different, so if you can check the options you should be able to see where the problem is

If not

Check you have the product key, download a frresh copy, uninstall the firewall, re-install the firewall then and check when it asks for the permissions for things
