I purchased my first PC a few months ago and am learning as I go, mostly by trial and error, and I will probably misuse terminology. I have Norton Internet Security and received a message of a low risk attempt to connect to my PC. I am overly cautious so I clicked on the "never allow access selection". Imagine my surprise when I realized I told Norton to block Explorer from connecting, I was able to confirm that mistake on a log I found on the Norton program. Surely there is an easy way to go in and unblock it, but I can't find it. Directions on how to do it will be appreciated.

Hi brandgz, first welcome to BC. Second I think this will help,
Unblocking programs in Norton Internet Security after selecting block and checking "Always use this action"

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
