WP Remix


We had a laptop come in today with a problem with accessing the internet. It was a dell XPS laptop and around 6 months old. Norton Internet Security 2008 came supplied with the Laptop. We tried to access the firewall settings on NIS but it was giving us a message informing us that we had to be an administrator to access the firewall settings even though we were logged in using an administrator account. We believed it had something to do with the software so we uninstalled NIS and Internet Explorer worked fine. We tried to install it again but still the same problem. The only way to fix this problem was to download an update of NIS 2009.
