This may not be much help to you. But my neighbour had the same problem with Norton when she bought a new laptop. Norton appears to be the frequent source of connection problems.
We has to diable Norton and download a free version of AVG.

Other more learned members may have a better solution.

Seems Norton Security rather then Norton Av produces problems. I run Norton Av 2004 and have just gone for another years virus definitions subcription - haven't bother to upgrade as I run Zone Alarm with it. Seems to me that we are possibly over protected as I'm also on BT Broadband - BT Yahoo that is. This also has anti virus checks on the mail. I'm quite happy with things as they are with Norton AV and Zone alarm but then of course it depends on the set up - just seems to suit mine.

Click on the website below to download a free copy of AVG. It also scans incoming email.

Please note that it is about 12MB, and depending on your connection, it may take some time to download.

PS. If you should decide to use AVG, then you should just DISABLE Norton, and DO NOT UNINSTALL it, as it may invalidate your warranty.
