It's NIS 2004. The feature that does it is Ad Blocking which I have tried to configure quickly for DiyAudio to be allowed with any op. No luck yet.

I would however not really call it an error as it is probably doing exactly the thing I bought it for...making the Internet a safer place to visit.

If you keep your machine upto date, keep ActiveX and Java turned off or at least highly-restricted your "visit" to the internet will be just as "safe". Using Opera or Mozilla alone will block most of the explioits, being most of them are aimed just at MSIE. If anything those programs consume resources, and provide parania(nothing like someone calling in saying someone is "hacking their computer" because BlackIce Defender said a ping is a possible attack). Not to mention I wouldn't put it past Norton to have their software record data on your PC and send it back to Norton, which is always nice, and the fact that "Norton Firewall"(and other "firewall" software I'm sure) has actually made machines more expliotable due to the fact the software itself has remotely expliotable bugs.

I installed NIS2004 on a Win2K testmachine. The result was a fatal blue screen after rebooting. No harm is done, that's what the testmachine is for, a new Win2K version was quickly installed.
So I gave up and continued searching the net and found this for you: http://www.broadbandreports.com/foru...ty,1~mode=flat
Looking at Post#4, this could be a nice place to post your problem.
