Windows firewall is not supposed to work when Norton is your security program. Norton has its own firewall plus whatever options it offers in the software you get. Mine for example is the Norton 360 internet security which includes a Firewall, internet protection, file and program management to name a few. (Windows does not provide much of what Norton offers) If you want free anti virus, AVG is excellent but be aware of what it does and check the program at least once a month to make sure there are no issues. Sometimes AVG will not let you know about new viruses but you will be able to eliminate them through AVG but you have to go in the program to do it. AVG is good!

How do you make a short cut for gmail


In Windows 7 I can copy the Web address in my browser, when I have Gmail open to my inbox, and then right-click the Desktop and select New from the menu and then select Shortcut from the next menu. A dialog opens up and says, "Type the location of the item" but you just right-click in the box and paste the address you copied. Hit Next, and type in a display name for your shortcut. Call it Gmail. Hit Finish.

Why is my Norton out of date even though I purchased the renewal?


Hi there,

The issue is because you have not activated your Norton program with the renewal code or the product key. To activate, open your Norton program and click on the "renew" or "subscribe" button on the bottom of the product.

Enter the renewal code or the product key that you have and click on the yellow arrow button next to it to activate your program.


Regards,
muhaim

Itunes cannot open . error code is -50. even after reinstalling everything new.


Do you have Norton Security? It could be blocking it.
Uninstall Norton and try AVG antivirus. Norton is a horrible program, I've had bad experiences.
Or disable any antivirus or firewall you have and try running iTunes.
Or try this.
1. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> iTunes --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
2. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> QuickTime --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
3. Go to My Computer --> Local Disc --> Program Files. Once in Program Files you will see the iTunes and QuickTime folder and you will want to delete the iTunes folder and the QuickTime folder. Right click on the iTunes folder and select delete and confirm the deletion. Do the same for QuickTime.
4. Restart your computer
5. Disable all features of any anti-virus program such as Norton or McAfee
6. Open Internet Explorer or which ever internet program you use and go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and download the iTunes+QuickTime program. *Do not do any modifications in the download of the program.* Just download the program by doing the usual "Next" clicking.
7. Once iTunes is finished downloading, double click on the Shortcut Icon on the desktop. iTunes should open with a large square box and you have to click "Agree."
Should be good to go.

Your problem is Nortons, This Software is notorious for this, what it is saying is you have a virus in your document folder and will not allow it to open or run. Uninstall Norton and Install a different Anti-Virus and watch your problem disappear. Good Luck. That Norton's is so mean I bet you even have trouble Uninstalling it, It don't like that. Ha Ha.
