Norton Firewall Difficlty

I get a continual Program Alert from my Norton Firewall program: "A remote system is attempting to access your system." I'm using Windows XP, and a DSL internet connection. I continually (at 3-5 minute intervals) get this message even though I direct the program to "always allow." The messages appear whether I'm on the net or not.... VERY FRUSTRATING

I suggest not using norton. Goto www.avast.com and use the Free home-edition. Set your windows firewall back to defaults after norton is uninstalled.

Make sure to have Avast scan every file on your system. You very well maybe infected.

Please do not think norton is all that great because you payed for it. Get Avast.

When I try to download anything I get a message that says my security settings are not allowing this download. I turned of security and still got the same message.


The computer is on alert, a messenger to the user. Several computer features perform alert functionalities. First, the firewalls are feature functions on the computer that prevents any program least recognized as belonging to the system from integration. Alternately said, a firewall on the computer disallows any program installations either achievable with CDs, Disk or DVD media or simple downloadable from networked structure of devices. In the situation that external programs were being introduced by the user, a message alert is displayed either as warning of possible infiltration or requesting permission for progress. Second, the computer security settings usually prevent any unauthorized integration of programs into users default settings. In which instance, the user has to disable the computers security else downloads of program installations would be nonexistent. Third, internet worked computer device usually has security setting for several purposes. First, internet security setting on the computer allows the default user of the computer to gain access to networked device often common with subscriber connections. Once an authorized user is recognized, permission is acquired to navigate the network. Alternately, internet computer securities disallow intrusion programs. For example while on the internet, it is possible to request programs either irrelevant in functionality, harmful ware clogging computers features as default. Finally, internet security make impossible hidden intrusions on the from several device operating under auspices least observable above program encryptions. However, a computer alert performs as reminder to the user that an introduction of programs from an elsewhere location is about to take place. Usually, a popup logo would require authorization approval to continue with accessibility or authorization disapproval for alternate response to be achieved. In the situation of yahoo messenger installation alert would require disabling the computer firewalls if any installation the program may be required. A computer firewall set as enabled would hardly allow installations or downloads unless the feature was set to disabled by the computer user for resuming of program transferability.

Norton software won't allow me to reach the internet


Are you logged in as an administrative user on the machine? If so, when you open up NIS2009, you should see three groups of controls. The middle group for Internet should have the a link for Settings next to it. Click on that. Enable the option for Automatic Program Control (might be on an Advanced Settings tab). This will let the firewall configure itself when a new program is run instead of asking the user. It normally gets the settings right. In the Program Control tab, select the programs that it is blocking that you want to allow and change the Access setting from Block to Allow or Auto.

Can,t unstiall norton


Norton Internet Security 2004/2005 has an effective firewall. This is in addition to the Windows firewall. Firewalls monitors and restricts information that travels between your computer and a network or the Internet and provides a line of defense against someone who might try to access your computer from outside the Firewall without your permission. In this case the windows firewall was disabled and Norton Firewall was the main one. When some program from your computer tries to connect to the internet, Norton Internet Security gives a prompt, which has options to allow or block the access. Many times the recommended option is to block the access. So be careful to see what you are blocking internet access before clicking OK. Click the Norton Security icon at the bottom right corner in your system tray. On the pop up window, first check if you have not clicked ?Block Traffic? button. As this will block all internet access. If that is ok, maybe the program has been blocked access and has to be unblocked manually. But it was not easy to find where was the blocked list. But here is it location. Go to Norton Internet Security > System and Settings and this is what you see ... Then you see that the Personal firewall is turned on to protect from unauthorized access to spyware, adware and other unwanted software. Click ?Configure? button. Go to Programs and scroll down the list for Manual Program Control. There you will see the individual internet access settings for each individual program. And you see that Mozilla Firefox/Internet Explorer setting shows ?Block All?. From the drop down list select ?Permit All? and now open Firefox. It works! And he is back to using firefox as his default browser again. Now you can scroll through the entire list and individually set the programs to allow and block internet access. Now you may fix some programs not working with the internet which you might have blocked by mistake. You can also set some allowed programs to block. I hope this tip helps. Now figure out the Custom option yourself!
