Cannot access internet with firewall on

  zzzgordon 22:47 27 Jan 2004

Looking for help and advice.

I run Win XP, and have Norton Anti virus and Firewall running whilst using broadband connection.

In the past week I cannot access the internet with the firewall active - when i disable the Norton firewall i can get access.

The only thing i can think i've done in past week or so is run a full Norton system and AV check.

Anyone help me get around this ?

its been a while since i used norton so not familiar with the interface but you should have some sort of program control menu.look here and give internet explorer access.

I and others have had problems with internet access after downloading ms update No Q330994, it seems to conflict with norton somehow, If you did a ms update at about the time you started having problems it might be worth removind this update via add/remove prog's. You can always download it again if it doesn't work!
good luck.

thanks to all - i've just unistalled and reinstalled norton and i'm back working.

Gypsy - yes i did download updates last week, but seem to be ok now.
