Hi guys,

I recently upgraded my Nortons Internet Security Package.

About a week ago or a little more maybe, there was a problem with one of Nortons releases, but they seemed to have fixed it.
However, i now find that in order to use several programs, including outlook express, and my online poker program, i have to disable the firewall.
I know this is the last thing i should be aiming to do, but when i try to configure it, even on the lowest security settings, it seems to still block them, and in the option where i can set the permissions for each program, it seems to have " always permit " as the option for the very programs its blocking.

I'm baffled, and firewalls/security etc is not the area im most familiar with. Would very much appreciate any feedback or info anyone might have.


If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???
