I received a pop up from Norton. This particular warning I have never received before. The popup suggested that explorer was trying to access the web (which seemed way to obvious for this to be a warning) Nonetheless, the suggested Norton action was to allow access at all times. I inadvertently hit "block access always" and then I was unable to access the web again.
(I normally access through a wireless network -if that matters)
How do I rectify this problem? I tried restarting but no change. My wireless connection reflected connectivity but when I tried to access the web it gave me the "page can not be displayed" default.
Many thanks

To unblock IE:
1. Open Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall.
2. Click "Personal Firewall" (if you are using Norton Firewall, skip this step.)
3. Configure it by clicking "Configure".
4. Then it opens the configuration window, click the "Programs" tab.
5. Then in Manual Program Control.
6. Find Microsoft Internet Explorer in the list.
7. Click "Modify".
8. Select "Automatically Configure Internet Access" or "Permit Always"
9. Click "Ok".
