Hi there,
I'm running Norton Internet Security 2004 on my Windows XP, and I keep getting these Program Control "high risk" alerts which are driving me MENTAL. For the last week or so, they pop-up constantly, so much so that you can't actually USE the internet, because they just pop up and pop up SOLIDLY any time you're connected to the net - just literally non-stop. In fact, I had to disconnect from the internet just to write this post. The alerts tell me that "a remote system is attempting to access your computer". For the longest time, we clicked the "Always use this action" box and then "ok", but now we've apaprently got too many program rules, so we can't use this option anymore. There has to be some kind of solution to this - it's making me CRAZY! The product support website for this is absolutely useless here too. Any ideas?

Thanks.
Christine

Alright, I did that yesterday, and I haven't seen any real change in the ridiculous amount of alerts i'm getting. Any other suggestions?
