Problem Application Name & Version: Symantec Personal Firewall?
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:


I'm having a great deal of difficulty with my firewall and Its got me
baffeled. The problem that I'm having is, whenever I logon to the net and begin to do what I normally do every day..read e-mails run Scan disc etc... I start getting these pop up windows in the lower right portion of my screen saying that I just had a ports scan attack. I thought I had everything configured to where this type of problem was taken care of. This afternoon alone... whomever scanned my computer no less than 300 times. What bothers me is that I have to stop what I'm doing and Click the icon in my tray at the bottom otherwise everything creeps along real slowly. Is there something I missed doing somewhere along the way? Or is there just something else I need to do that I was unaware of from the beginning? What I DO know however is that this id beginning to get a little ridiculous. Not to mention its beginning to drive me straight up the wall. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated

Hi Sandy,
It's good to see you again too. Thank You for all the help. I really needed it. Phew! I searched and searched for some kind of an answer at the Symantec Site but I came away empty. I sure am glad that someone out there knows how to nail this stuff down. I followed the directions set forth by Symantec, so we'll see if I finally got it right. It seems that its right , because I haven't had a Port Attack Scan yet and by now.. I would have so many I'd be pullin what hair I got left... outta my head. Again... Thank You for the help and if I start to get Scanned again I'll know I've got more work to do...Take care and I'll let you know something within a couple of days at least.
Charlie;D
