that you simply have all of your ports closed. Read the instructions and then you will have to enable the ports for the sites that you want to go to.
Here's a link to port info.
I know it isn't practice of CNet to "suggest" products, etc. but I'm doing my best to protect my son's computer while I'm using it on a LAN connection.
His operating system is Windows XP and I just installed Norton Personal Firewall 2004. As long as it is enabled, I cannot view any websites (this did not happen on Windows 98, my computer). I have to disable and then refresh for it to open the web page.
I've seen information about Windows XP Service Pack 2 but for now, I'm just afraid to install anything else and make it worse.
Could someone provide the forum address for Symantec customers. I have looked everywhere on the site and keep batting a big ZERO!! In a previous post, I was advised to check that forum for questions regarding Norton PF and Windows XP but I just have had no success at finding the forum. The suggestion was that I would most likely find other users that have experienced the same problem and hopefully a simple and easy fix!
I'm really afraid I'll make matters worse and I'm just trying to keep it as simple as possible until my new computer arrives but my son does plan to take his back to college with him, which he will have a LAN connection there too so I really must get this resolved.
Thanks in advance for your help!! This is the easiest forum I've found and the most helpful. That's why my computer illiteracy keeps me shwoing every time I post a question! :o)
