It should, by default, allow all the browsers. Generally no setup is required to achieve this.

What happens when you run IE, say?

Well, he may have changed from SEP to Avast.

Let's be a bit cautious. Never hurts. <An opinion only.>

have you rebooted the system if you are making the changes?

Are you able to browse when you are in safe mode with networking?

It sounds to me like you have not fully removed either Avast anti virus (Premier has a firewall In it) or Symantec endpoint which might also have a firewall In it.   As others have already told you,  having two anti virus programs running at the same time will cause issues like this.  You need to fully remove one of these programs and install only one.  I would recommend removing both and rebooting and install only one.  Reboot again and test.   I prefer Avast but then again I have never run Symantec Endpoint.  BUT THEN again,  if you actually have Avasti, then you might have a virus posing as an anti virus program.

You could use Revo Uninstaller or any other uninstaller software to completely remove SEP and Avast.

Since I have 2 anti virus running that is why I posted 2 separate questions, in order to be fair to the Gurus who respond who might think I am shortchanging them in the points.
But these 2 programs have stopped my attack by all sorts of redirects, malware and other malicious add ons that virtually took over my pc whenever I accessed the internet.  I could never get a first time to the site that I had clicked, always I would have been redirected to somewhere else, asking me either to install one of Adobe's products or just another site to take part in a survey, etc.
thank u for your responses.

It's alright to run two antivirus programs, but the real-time protection from one must be disabled (and also the firewall).

But now you are asking how to access the internet. Since we can't see your system and most people don't run two security suites such as above, we would suggest not running two programs at once. Do you know how to disable SEP?  

I have installed avast internet security on my windows 7 64 bit home premium and I did not have to modify any settings after install to access the internet which indicates to me that you have a possible 3 different programs blocking you.

What is the exact error message you receive when trying to access the internet? A screenshot may help.

When was the last time you could access the internet? What changes or software did you install since that time? Have you tried doing a system restore to a time previous?

By the way, if we get you online with avast, how do we know the experts trying to help you with step aren't reverting our work here?
