Norton Alert Assistant

Wonder if someone can help.

My Norton Anti Visus Alert Assistant seems to have gone a little mad. It is popping up saying such and "such is trying to access the internet" please either allow deny etc. This is coming up for everything even Internet Explorer. When I click allow it just appears again and again. The only way I have been able to access the internet is to turn Norton off for 30 mins to send this and other messages.

It has worked fine for ages but seems to be suddenly trying to block everything.

I don't know why.

Thanks very much

Thanks. Thta hasn't worked as it still won't allow access to any sites. The notification doesn't seem to be the problem It's just that even when I click "allow access...." it won't allow access unless I turn of the Anti Virus software completely as I have now to send this.
