    Running Norton Internet Security

    Productivity is halved on my system as every 5-10seconds I have to click OK on an unwanted Security Alert.

    Window Title: "Security Alert"

    Window Text:

    "Your computer is at risk in the following areas:"
    "- Firewall protection is turned off"
    "Open your Norton product to resolve these issues"
    "TICKBOX To prevent duplicate security status alerts, use my existing Norton product alerts and turn off redundant Windows Security Center alerts. (recommended)"

    "OK button"

    Have been unable to get rid of it - any ideas ?

    I'm running a peer to peer network, Firewall is on the router - all firewalls on PCs are turned OFF !!!

    Well, have you turned the firewall on? And see if it has the same messages?

    need firewalls off as we do VPN & VNC from machine to machine
    - also, they will block normal network traffic ?

    Only need the firewall on the router, protecting the LAN from outside threats

    Last night I got so fed up I just de-installed Norton Internet Security & NAV
    I installed some freeware AV - "Avast"
    OK, I lose the investment in Norton products, and 11mths left of a 1yr subscription, but worth it for the peace of mind

    NAV ? nav-er again !

    :)
