Please Help!!!!!!! :tazz:

I all of a sudden can't access the internet at all unless Norton Anti Virus is disabled and have tried everything at their support page and apparently there is no reaching them through email.





Does anyone know what to try next in this situation?

Open Norton and check the settings. If your Norton has a firewall, disable it and then try the internet again.

If your Norton doesn't have a firewall, you could try reinstalling Norton. But considering it is Norton, you may have difficulties uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Let me know how it goes.

Uninstall Norton and install an antivirus program that doesnt want to take over complete control of the universe?

I reinstalled it and all is well. Is there a simple cheap free effective antivirus anti spam software that you'd recommend?

Avast! is a free anti-virus. I'm not sure if it is anti-spam, but it is a good, free anti-virus.

You can click on more links in my signiture under the Anti-Malware section for more choices. The first 4 are anti-virus programs.
