It´s worse than that. 10 months after your original post, I installed Norton 2007 and observed the same problem. The worst part? Norton doesn´t even have a solution posted on their web site. I guess they figure it´s a way to generate revenue for their call-in center (which charges for $29 per call). At this point, I would recommend that no one EVER purchase or install Norton Internet Security.
I´ve used NIS for some 3 years, with only the usual horrific system-lag to contend with.
Last week however, and with no changes to my system, NIS began blocking all https pages and steaming content for me also.
Whilst I´ve rectified the problem (by turning off the Norton Firewall, and going back to Windows Firewall), I´m no longer prepared to put up with the glitches and annoyances asscoiated with NIS - it´s coming off my system for good this week, and I´m never buying another Symantec product again.
How do i turn Norton Firewall off for 2007?
What´s worse, is I know a LOT of PC´s like HP and Dells come preconfigured with Norton.
I´m the IT manager of an e-commerce site, and the last several days we´ve had to deal with (potential) customers who keep having problems getting past the credit card authorization.we finally narrowed it down to the Norton!
I have exactly that problem and no idea how to solve it, turning off the firewall doesn´t seem to work. I don´t know how to ´´go back´´ to windows firewall.
I such got off the phone with Norton. can´t access https sites A real user guide would be nice to help fix this. What a piece of crap ! Will the MS fire wall do the same thing ?
Wow. I just had to make a house call for a friend who was up against this same problem. I could not believe what I did (adding port 443) to make it work. Why the heck would this be off at all? How in the world would the average person figure this out?
Guess what - latest norton release and it is still there!
What is even funnyer is that it blocks the product suite from going to the Norton site so you can update your subscription and manage your Norton account.
As soon as my subscription expires I will be throwing this product away and getting one that works out of the box.
