Norton antivirus blocks web sites


Hey Justin sy!

You have installed Norton Antivirus for your protection. Basically Norton Antivirus creates a Firewall between you and the internet. Whenever you try to visit a site that has malicious virus, Norton activates its protection shield and gives you the message, which you are facing now. If Norton does not block that malicious site, the malicious virus will enter in your computer and will cause damages. However, there is an option in Norton antivirus that you can disable this firewall. After disabling it, you will be able to view the webpage which was blocked by the Norton before. But the malicious virus will enter in your computer in this case.

I highly recommend you not to disable the firewall to avoid the losses.
