Windows 7: Norton Blocks My Connections

24 Mar 2014   #1

Win 7 Pro 64bit
Norton Blocks My Connections

One a month something happens in Norton to prevent my win7 64 bit machine from accepting connections and shares. This machine can access every other computer on the office network but if you try to access the win7 machine you get a "you don't have access" message. The fix is always the same, bring up Norton and "reset" the firewall. There is a place to do this on the firewall page. The word "reset" is underlined and just click it and you are good to go for another month.

I don't know why this happens but am posting this to help anyone else who may experience this.

SP1 Update blocks driver
I use Altiris Software Virtualization. Since SP1 the driver gets blocked and I cannot use it anymore. It gets blocked for stability reasons. Is there any option to unblock this driver? Did not have problems with it. One more question - I have all updates. Do I need the SP1 update then?
