Hi,
    the problem i have is that i cannot access internet explorer or any desktop items,(poker sites etc)
have spoken to microsoft they have checked that windows(xp profesional) is ok.
Im with NTL and they have checked that everything is fine, (both have gone through safe mode)
  they seem to be saying its my firewall configuration, only the can't help with this,
 so how do i alter my firewall - security settings,
I have Norton 06 on my computer,  and use Spyware Detective and Regestry Mechanic about once a night,
   any ideas or solutions are welcome and appreciated,
                                                                              john.

is it just norton antivirus or is it norton internet security as well-- if just nav then you can configure the worm protecdtion rule to allow for the scope of ips on your network

open up the face page for norton click on options--nav--on the left of the page select internet worm protection rule and then walk through adding ip addresses.
