View Full Version : HELP!!!

OK, so here's my deal. I've been running Norton Internet Security 2004 on my desktop machine (win XP) for a year or so, with no problems. However, starting a couple of days ago, I cannot access the twoplustwo forums from my desktop. I figured out that if I disable the security feature, then I can actually access the forums. However, when i turn it back on, I can't actually see the forums - a blank page only loads. This really sucks. I assume that some update got loaded, and I don't know how to defeat it. Thank god it still lets me gamble. Can somebody give me a solution? Thanks in advance! My laptop, which is running Security 2005 seems to be unaffected (so far).

Edit: I should add that I have tried both I.E. and Firefox to browse with, to no avail.

honestly the 'internet security' part causes nothing but conflict/problems as far as i've seen. keep the antivirus part enabled, download microsoft antispyware (free), enable xp service pack 2's firewall (with exceptions disabled), and don't be a boner on the internet (opening email attachments, clicking shady links, etc).

But I'm paranoid. I would like to have this (possibly artificial) peace of mind, but I guess I'll leave it like this for the time being, unless i get a fix. I hate computers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i'm an IT professional, but fwiw i run antivirus (norton corporate or avg free), ms antispyware, and use the xp firewall for public connections. i literally never have a problem with viruses, spyware, hacks, etc.

I trust you. Of course, when my computer gets overrun by porn spam spyware, I'm complaining to you to fix it! /images/graemlins/tongue.gif
