That link didn't work for me. Last week, an update delivered via Live Update brought my NIS to its knees. I had to uninstall, then reinstall, which meant I needed to retrain the firewall, as well as reconfigure the whole thing and do all the long scans. Arrgghhh! The error message was "Symantec's Norton has encountered a problem, and needs to close". It shut off the firewall on its own. I wasn't at the computer, so I was more than slightly annoyed when I returned. It would not restart the firewall, even after a reboot, so I followed the directions provided by the error message. (I hae been known to blow off some Symantec errors with good luck in the past.) NIS would not install over top of itself (that usually allows you to keep your settings), I tried. I'd like to read this article, Ron, if you can find it again. TIA
