    Norton Firewall and web popups - Help

    while I have ZoneAlarmPro on my desktop PC in my home up north, I got Norton's Personal Firewal free for my laptop when I signed up for ADSL in Florida a year ago. I don't understand all the ins and outs of Norton's Firewall yet, so can someone give me a quick clue on stopping these doggone webpopups, which are coming many times a day now, without stopping the messenger service or anything else that might be necessary. I am using Windows XP Professional just in case that provides a needed handle.

    Re: Norton Firewall and web popups - Help

    I personally won't use the "Norton" products because I don't like the way Symantec takes over a machine, so I can't help you with it. However, there are popup suppressing products that you can use if Norton doesn't have that capability built in. I use one called Popup Stopper, form http://www.panicware.com/, which coexists nicely with ZoneAlarm Pro and is quite cheap, but there are others that have been mentioned in this board before If you do a lounge search in this forum on popup it should turn up a bunch of threads for you to examine.
