NIS stops web access

I have Norton Internet Security 2003..win98 OS..When it,s enabled i can't access any web pages...or Outlook Express..My security level is set at Medium (reccommended) When i disable NIS then everything works great which kinda defeats the purpose? Any ideas as to why it's blocking me when its enabled???....Thanks!!!!!!

Try to check the firewall rule for the browser

Look for firewall>program rules to see if your browser and email program is set to Automatic or Permit all. If not, change it to allow, automatic or permit. If it is already set as that, try deleting the entry after closing the browser and any open windows. Try to browse again.
