I would try deleting the existing entry in Favorites - then open the web page as above and Add to Favorites again

Is this a new PC that has Norton on, as when it runs out you have to pay a fee to keep it running and yearly subscription to keep up with all the viruses that are about.
There are free antivirus programs available if you don't want to stay with Norton.

yes it is a new pc,what i suggested too him was delete norton then download something like Commodo firewall and Avast anti V.
thing is i dont know how too get rid of Norton?
Could this be whats causing the problem ?
