Have you a small globe [like the world] in your taskbar right hand side. Not sure about 98 but if you have, right click and enable alert trackerThat will let you know if you are being attacked and Norton has stopped it. Yes you can get attacked several times a day. Keep me posted on this
Right clicking on that says: Norton Personal Firewall Enabled. But I still have never received an alert. I went to a website click here which checked my computer and reported that as far as the internet is concerned this computer does not exist. Is that good news?
