Since downloading the latest LiveUpdates from Symantec Norton Personal Firewall won't let IE access the internet.
I checked to see if IE was blocked in 'settings' and set access control to automatic, but Norton still blocks access. Furthermore everything seems to be running slowly since the update (mouse sluggish etc.).
When I disable the firewall there are no problems with IE. But then I've got no protection.
It is possible that the update was corrupted? Is there anything wrong with the patch?
I had the same problem with norton firewall as well it was working ok until i downloaded the new updates the i got problems like no internet access via IE i got rid of the problem by uninstlling the firewall and intalling Zone Alarm instead.
I've managed to solve the problem by using system restore to go back to a point prior to the latest updates. I then downloaded the updates again. Everything appears to be fine now, fingers crossed.
For the record, I checked the access level settings and they were okay. Then I disabled Norton Firewall and the symptoms I was experiencing disappeared, so I was sure it was something to do with the updates I had recently downloaded. I presume the update had been corrupted somehow.
Thanks to all of you for your suggestions.
