There should be some form of access control that needs authorising to allow internet access.

ask for help on here first in future could save you a lot of hassle.If you have a seperate firewall,uninstall the one you have purchased if it causing problems.There are others that are good and free.Run a virus check with this click here
Also what is your os

I would remove Computer Shield (I think you may have been conned) and install Zone Alarm (free) click here

If you have ditched Norton, try AVG (free) click here

Thanks for your response only found this by chance yesterday what do you mean by my os i am downloading mway.exe so thank you again do you think i should uninstall computer shield

OS = Operating System = version of Windows.

What is myway.exe and why are you downloading it?

You do not need to pay for malware removal programs - are you responding to pop-up ads?

VoG™ ,mwav.exe is the Microworld anti virus toolkit, it's a stand alone virus scanner similar to stinger only much more comprehensive in what it looks for. Bigish download as it doesn't update incrementally but a usefull tool as a backup to a full AV package.

daidash, I find this "Computer Shield Firewall" and their marketing tactics intriguing, could you post a link to their website ?

just copy and paste it in the message box, the forum will handle the rest automatically.
