Uninstall and reinstall Norton..........that usually does the trick.

For a more permanent solution uninstall Norton and install one of the many freeware alternatives such as ZoneAlarm or Sunbelt/Kerio firewall and Avast or AVG antivirus.

That's what I did a Year ago(Internet Security Suite 2005).......I got fed up of Norton causing more problems than the things it was supposed to be protecting me against.

The major annoyances were.....preventing me accessing the web and going wrong after an auto update.After around 5 reinstalls of Norton in 4 months it had to go.
