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.

Yeah, I would much rather have him as the starting QB for the Giants than Eli Manning, notwithstanding his prolific surname.

Two quarters away from their first Super Bowl and that bastard had to ruin it.

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.

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

Tonight's bad news is that I just discovered a few dozen (at least) trailers going up about a quarter to half mile from my house. They look like FEMA trailers. Apparently, the government is moving refugees into my neighborhood.

Regardless of who I root for I expect the Steelers to win.

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.

Hrmpt.

I'm on DSL too.

Any ideas?

..if you want to completely rid yourself of Norton--after deleting it and assuming you want to keep everything on your hard drive, you may need to go to regedit and kill every reference to Norton. There are also little utilities that will clean out the registry--but use caution.

If you want a good free antivirus program, try AVG.

If you want a good free software firewall, try ZoneAlarm.

I agree. I gave up on Norton over a year ago. It became to bloated and caused to many problems. AVG is much better.

Yep, I'll have to buy another lottery ticket next week. Maybe I'll win and be able to retire early. If I can retire early, I can move somewhere with fewer people.

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
