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!

I have yahoo mail on my Samsung GT-P5110 I receive E-Mails but cannot open them. How do I fix this?

Hello, your tablet should run Android's native mail application. If you receive mail but can't open them, that can be due to a slow internet connexion: it takes time to download mail contents, event if the mails are only text. If there is an attachement, it takes longer to download them. The IMAP protocol, used by Yahoo, Gmail and others give you the opportunity to have your mails on multiple devices.

I guess that your problem is fixed now, without modifying any settings?

After I open and read email in yahoo, it shows up the next time as "not read" why?

I think that your problem has something to do with it's imap and mail filters...I think that yahoo mail should improve their software to avoid problems like this. You can also sign up for gmail if you want. Gmail is much secure and more usable compared to yahoo mail. Gmail has lots of functions. You can even save your important files in gmail like a flashdrive. In that case, you can just open your files anywhere without your flashdrive as long as the computer is connected to internet.

I have forgotten how to use the net to check my email

Open internet browser like internet explorer, mozilla firefox or google chrome. Then type on the address bar example your mail account was yahoo so you type or for gmail. On the website of yahoo or gmail log in your account or your username and password then press enter. There you can read or view your email by clicking your inbox. Have a nice day.
