Norton Internet Security

Grateful if anyone could explain bit more about the answer in Nov helpline for security – the one about Norton and the really, really, really annoying pop up messages [see page 155].
I get exactly the same and it drives me bonkers + couple of times I have not read pop-up properly and clicked “permit” to create a new firewall rule; oops [restore default settings].

If you do what the PCA answer suggests [turn off the notification of access control alerts] what happens – is everything blocked by default ? I sometimes get pop-ups requesting me to permit or reconfigure – what will happen to these.

When i get such a message i click 'block' and ticke the box 'dont notify me again' so that way norton blocked the attempted access, does it again next time, but just does not tell me.

Yep I do the same & it helps but I get so many new alerts where previous rule[s] do not apply. Have just had a look in my log file for alerts - 248 make that 250 [just had two more] since 30/08.

& now 251 ......
