    It has to be something to do with the Norton Firewall.
    Did you try to shut it down, just for the purpose of troubleshooting?
    Also, try to disable norton when the sys starts up.
    trype in msconfig
    look for norton entries
    uncheck it, you can always check it back
    try the sites again

    I think you have problem with few web sites..

    work around is
    on the link
    click with the [ctrl] key pressesd.

    this will allow the pop-ups

    No, it's not crtl c nor is it Norton.  The message is from IE and I have disabled that service in the startup and the tool settings....

    I don't want the problem with a few websites.  When I am testing I want the site to download so I can estimate download time immediately - it will download partial content but not some, so there's no getting an accurate attempt.  More thoughts/ideas?  Thanks.
