1.) To block windowsmedia.com, ad it to your Norton and Earthlink blacklists. You can also add it to your HOSTS file.
2.) To get rid of the HP prompts, uninstall Backweb and look through Add/Remove Programs for any other HP update software listings. (Individual HP products have their own update checkers.)
3.) I don't know of any way to silence Norton but hopefully someone else does.
Windows XP Pro Service pack 2
I have Windows Internet Security on Medium-High. I have blocked all cookies.
I use Earthlink pop-up blocker and Norton full system security. Both usually work great, but windowsmedia.com is an allowed intrusion. How can I block these?
Also, how can I stop HP prompts to check for software updates? Also, how can I stop Norton from reminding me 3 months in advance that my subscription will expire and would I like to renew now?
