new guy here, hope this is the right place to post. i'm having problems with those red x's this is what microsoft told me,
Norton Internet Security (NIS) provides a Graphical User Interface feature that can be used to enable or disable Ads from appearing on your computer. To enable or disable the NIS Ad Blocking feature, follow these steps: 1. Open Norton Internet Security. 2. Click Ad Blocking from the menu categories located on the left side of the screen. 3. To disable the Ad Blocking feature, uncheck the option on the left “Enable Ad Blocking” as shown in the picture. NOTE: The NIS Ad Blocking feature starts automatically when it is enabled or disabled. It is not necessary to shutdown and restart NIS or to restart your computer. Additionally, this issue occurs when NIS or NPF is configured to block scripts, ActiveX controls, Java applets, referral information, or advertisements. ActiveX controls and Java applets can be blocked by customizing your security settings from the main interface. To find out whether this is the problem, see the section "Customized settings." All these security features (scripts, ActiveX controls, Java applets, referral information, and advertisements) can be blocked by specific Web rules. These rules are located in the Advanced Options of the program. For scripts, ActiveX controls, Java applets, and referral information, visit the section "Web rules." Customized settings: 1. Open your Symantec desktop Internet security or firewall product. 2. Click Security. 3. Click Custom Level. The "Customize Security Settings" window appears. 4. Look at both the Java applet and ActiveX boxes. If either or both are set to block, lower the security level and then click OK. (In the example above, Java applets are being blocked.) 5. Try to connect to the Web

I can understand your apprehension. Those instructions are pretty heavy sounding, but if you get rid of all of the rubbish, there are only a few simple steps.

1. Open Norton Internet Security. 2. Click Ad Blocking from the menu categories located on the left side of the screen. 3. To disable the Ad Blocking feature, uncheck the option on the left “Enable Ad Blocking” as shown in the picture.


See if you can do just that much of it. You can always undo it if something goes wrong, but I think you will be just fine. :thumbsup: Would I be correct to assume that you are using Internet Explorer as your browser?
