Default Norton Internet Security - Blank topic

I just reinstalled my computer and came across something for the first time. All topics are blanked out. I see the other columns in the list like Forum, Age, Replies, Views and Last Post but not the Topic.

Anybody have an idea what the code is that causes this and how to enable it?

Euh, not too sure what your problem is. Picture perhaps?
What makes you think Internet Security is involved?

OS is W2K. Reason I believe it is NIS that is causing it because I disable it to post this and read your replies and when I enable it again the topics are blank on next refresh.

If you use NIS as a firewall, get rid of it.
Install Zonealarm. Works like a charm and is free.
IMHO this the best workaround for your problem.

I have one computer left with NIS & W2K, and it doesn't behave like that, though there are so many possible settings in NIS that it might...
I've learned to hate NIS. It's a resource hogger and causes all kinds of problems. It is probably the worst investment I've made.
As soon af I find time, I'm scrapping mine (on my laptop), and will install anti-vir (free virus checker):

For me a firewall is not required as I have an external one. But it is not to be omitted.

Since I happen to think that NIS is the best solution available on the market for an Internet Security Suite and the fact that I have never had any problems with it on any platform before then I am not likely to get rid of it. I just need to figure out what the setting is that affects these particular forum pages. I visit other forums without problems.

You might find something here: http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/consumer.html
Perform LiveUpdate a few times as well.

Default A case in point...

I booted up my W2K laptop just now, and it did a live-update. Following the update, it immediately claimed to find "Backdoor.Daemonize" (A trojan) in wmp.exe (that's the media player), and tried to deleted it.
It didn't matter much because I hardly use media player, and I knew there was another version on the machine.
Then it found the same virus in wmplayer.exe (the other one), and it did delete that!
The wmp.exe wasn't deleted, and so it's impossible to use the computer without constant virus pop-ups. I've scanned the file with Anit-vir, and with Virex (Mac), and they both give it a clean bill of health.


Anyway, if you like NIS, you're welcome But it's coming off my machine today, before it deletes something important, and wastes me more time.
