Hi, Joe.

You might try the free (and award-winning) ZoneAlarm firewall, from www.zonelabs.com <dd> -- Dave K.

Windows version?

Hi, Keith.

Angeline had the same problem -- things were fine in the old forum, but the clickable links didn't show in the new one unless she disabled Norton Firewall.

I'm using Norton Firewall and it is enabled. No problem viewing the posts. Check the settings of Nortong Firewall>Options>Personal Firewall>Web Content>Default

Also, scroll to the left pane to find the entry for cnet.com site, review the user and privacy settings for cnet.com

I found that by unchecking "Block ads on this site" in Norton Firewall's Web assistant for this site I resolved the problem viewing posts.

I got a few complaints on this and I just wanted to verify if this is a solution to the problem for all Norton firewall users.

thanks!

I am also using Norton Firewall. I had to change my security settings, as Donna suggested. In the end, I find that the ad blocker is too much of a hassle, so I use a hosts file and remove all entries in the Web Content / Ad blocking section.
