A couple of things to try...
1) make sure you are logged in a system administrator.
2) If you made a recovery disk when you installed Norton you can use that to gain access to the firewall.
3) Reboot the system. It may clear a corrupted file that is hanging up you firewall.
Well, I don't remember if it was 93 or 94.
BTW I concur with ya
Yeah, I would much rather have him as the starting QB for the Giants than Eli Manning, notwithstanding his prolific surname.
I don't expect to see a Browns Super Bowl either, but I am NOT rooting for the Steelers.
That doped-up, big play, bumbling SOB.
Two quarters away from their first Super Bowl and that bastard had to ruin it.
Exactly. I'm with you there.
A post and run, but I could sure use one of those right now.
I am really looking forward to this year's Super Bowl!
Whenever I've had an access problem, I go and delete the "Microsoft Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" entry and the problem is fixed.
Shut down all open programs, Go to the "Firewall" page, click "Configure," supply the password (you SHOULD have a password), click the "Programs" button, and then remove the "Microsoft Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" entry under "Manual Program Control."
Reboot your computer and Norton will recreate this rule. This has always fixed it for me.
OK, little late to the party but here I am (you may all be thrilled now)
Hi, Kate. What team are you rooting for?
I think the problem is deeper than the web site deals with. It sounds like access to the firewall settings is also blocked. Thats what leads me to believe a corrupt file. AWB
Start-->All Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->Files and Settings Transfer Wizard
I've never used it, but it's worth a look for you.
During any given year since early childhood I never found myself particularly following the Seahawks, but did follow the Steelers off and on, so if what I expect happens, I'll be happy.
Crazy as it sounds, I was watching football with my dad just to be with my dad. I was too young to follow and fully understand the game at that age but found myself following certain players and teams over the years.
My all time favorites are actually college teams (Notre Dame, ASU and UT...but will also root for the other Arizona universities...unless it is interstate and then it is Sun Devils all the way!)
OK, the problem was that I couldn't log on to secure sites. And it's gotten progressively worse over the last month.
My (Sample) Norton Virus Scan and Firewalls said they had expired, but when I pinged myself, there was clearly something blocking me.
When I tried to get 'to' the Firewall configure settings, it would tell me that I didn't have priviledges (The stinker!)....
I've tried calling and contacting Symantec, but like on forum posted, it's almost impossible to get help. I was on hold for 45 minutes at one point. The second time I got someone in Calcutta (Sweet girl...but) she kept saying "My supervisor won't let me do that!" (I think, her English was such I could have gotten the downtown Dominoes)....
SO, I've gone to Tweaks for Geeks, and I downloaded DLL servers.
I ran a Veri Sign Scan and computer is OK.
I've also read that Norton expired would block https sites, so I've also deleted all Norton programs (like they advised)....and turned off and rebooted my 'pooter.
And TA DA!
Not a damn thing has changed.
I'm on DSL too.
Oh no bummer!
Hey we're open 24/7!
I love my adoring fans!
Are you using Nortin's firewall ?
If you uninstalled it then do you still have another firewall?
Have you tried using firefox?
Oh the hugh-manatee!
If you want a good free antivirus program, try AVG.
If you want a good free software firewall, try ZoneAlarm.
How long have they been expired?
See post #70
Hey how ya doing?
I use use both and I like 'em
Start-->All Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools
Scott I don't need the help najida does
I agree. I gave up on Norton over a year ago. It became to bloated and caused to many problems. AVG is much better.
Didn't you say you got a new laptop and need to transfer your files and settings?
I will have to go back and read that later on. Just finished moving and feel totally wiped out!
I have Windows Firewall (but I've turned it off too).
I haven't tried another firewall until I'm sure I can get on secure sites (like my yahoo email, ebay, my bank account etc!!!) :)
Interesting you should mention that,
It won't let me delete one Norton thingie....
It keeps threatening me (if a computer can do that)
and saying that "Some programs may not work if you delete this!"
Well hell, I can't get to my checking account, so I'm not too worried.
I hope everything works out for you!
Have you read anything interesting this week?
They expired around Christmas time (and I was too busy to care or notice).
..if a person is on a tight budget, these are very good. We always tell students about those products among others.
What would I do without you?
All right then more info means new things to check. Assuming you removed all Norton programs with Windows add/remove programs then we need to check the Windows firewall and see if it is now activated and what its setting are. If you just deleted Norton files without using add/remove programs you will need to reload expired copu of nortons and then delete it.AWB
There's no telling. Wouldn't FR just not be the same place?
And I would not have the many wonderful taglines I've had in recent months.
well if all of your firewalls are turned off then maybe you have an IE problem. You really should try firefox and see if you can get to those sites with it.
I have no more advice than that.
Backhoe,ShadowAce,rdb3: Are you around? The more helpful ideas here the better.
It sounds to me like your windows "registry" still has a bunch of norton stuff in there.
Registry First Aid is a good program for cleaning your "reg"
