Hi

Hoping someone can help me.

I recently downloaded the new version of Yahoo Messenger. When I went to log in, Nortons sent up a warning about allowing YPager to connect to the internet. I accidentally told Nortons to always block YPager from connecting to the net. Now I can't sign in to Yahoo Messenger without disabling Nortons.

Can someone please tell me how to remove the block? I've tried to work it out and can't.

Cheers.

I am not that familiar with Nortons firewall but if you go into the programs properties/options there should be a section for the programs that are allowed or not allowed to access the internet. Change the settings for the Yahoo pager accordingly.
