1) Open up the Norton's firewall settings,
disable the firewall altogether

2) Try your WEB browser to see if you get Google.

3) Disable the Windows Firewall, try again.

(Chose only one fire wall, never run both.)

4) Norton's is ****-ware that also scans your computer
for known pirated software, and uploads this information
to Symantec, who share this info with Microsoft
and others, including law enforcement.

This information was confirmed by a telephone call
to Symantec Canada tech support.

Their security software is also horribly slow and taxing,
(resource pig) so I would never use it.

I recommend AVG, with the WEB and link scanner
disabled (these also really slow down your machine).

For secure WEB browsing, I prefer Fire Fox, with
the Finjan and NoScript plug-ins.

5) Once all your security-ware is disabled, try the
Internet again.

6) If it still doesn't work, go to the DOS-like command prompt,
and type IPCONFIG /ALL

a) check you IP address, make sure it is NOT all zeros

b) type: IPCONFIG / release
IPCONFIG / renew
IPCONFIG / all

if you IP address is still zeros, your TCP/IP /network

stack is damaged, run the Windows network setup wizard!

if the IP address is OK,

type: ping www.google.com

to test the DNS settings.

if there is a problem, again run the network setup wiz


Once your TCP/IP stack is working,
and you can get to Google with your
WEB browser,

Re-enable your security ware one at a time
to see what is causing the problem.

If the firewall blocks your communications,
uninstall and re-install it, then let it auto-detect
all your applications during setup.

Once your WEB browser is working with the firewall,
you may also need to setup exceptions for each additional
internet applications, and for the TCP and/or UDP ports
that they need.

This is done within the firewall settings. You need to follow
the instructions that came with your firewall and your
apps.

It is also possible to setup the firewall to ASK your permission,
every time you run a new application, so that the firewall will
LEARN on the job.

Once again:

1) I don't like Norton's

2) The best firewall is a hardware residential router,
for about $50. E.g. Cisco, SMC ... etc.

The router let's you setup who and what can access the
Internet or the router itself, and block everything else.

It also allows you to share a single Internet connection
among several computers through network address
translation or NAT. Some even offer WEB site
blocking or parental controls.

The router will stop all hostile incoming traffic.

3) To stop outgoing (spyware) traffic from unsavory applications
or home-sick software like Microsoft & Adobe, install the
AVG anti-virus-firewall from Grisoft.

It is far superior.

Hope this helps,

Please rate my answers,

Martin

Lost all connection with internet


Looks to me the EASIEST thing to do would be to use SYSTEM RESTORE function for windows and go back at least one day before you installed the update. That should lick this problem.

You may also try to disable Norton and see what is does for you internet connection. Uninstalling Norton is not out of the question, but you may have to get the NORTON REMOVAL TOOL to completely get rid of Norton.

Hope it helps!

Cannot manage to load norton security programme


hi there,

although, not specified what you did but i presume 2 actions:

1. Running the program and cannot be completely loaded, it means that there's a program that block your Norton Internet Security 2008 to run, and that might be a Virus or Trojan. or someone is hacking in your pc (might be). and this will happen, if your Norton Internet Security 2008 is not updated and/or you install an internet plug ins in some of your visited website and through that plug ins the website administrator has a link in your pc to access, but not all.

solution: try to uninstall and fresh install your Norton Internet Security 2008 but before you do that make sure that you have a supported docs like cd key and response code from Norton if any, to successfully install your anti virus. and before you install, unplug your connection from internet (install offline, after installation, update it and scan your pc).

2. you install your Norton Internet Security 2008 and cannot be completely loaded, it means that Norton program is corrupted. please have a fresh copy in cd if any and install it.
