Hey all. Basically my problem is that i recently re-installed LOTR - The Battle for Middle-Earth, and everytime it starts up the usual message from my norton internet security program pops up asking whether to "permit", "block", "automatically" or "manually" configure internet access. I click "Permit Always", and then the game crashes, with the splash screen frozen. The game then doesnt dissapear, even when i manually try to end the program. Now i thought it was an issue with the game, but ive tried other games and download managers and applications after this, and the same thing happens: the "permission" screen comes up, i click Allow, and it crashes. I have things already permitted, Like WoW and Act of War, and BitTorrent, and they work fine, so this problem is recent and only affects new permission protocols.

Please Help! thanks.

Go into the Norton Firewall, find 'Manually Configure Acess' (i think by clicking on the firewall) and allow the game
