    Not sure this goes here but Norton Personal Firewall 2002 is flipping out on me.

    about every 5 seconds it is giving me the same warning.

    "Attempt to connect to local computer using the Netspy Trojan horse blocked"

    googled it and found another forum post on it with 2003 norton anti.

    They suggested use spybot (updated) adaware 6.0

    no luck with the problem.

    they also pointed this out http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/w...ode=&contentId=A28500-2003Mar15&notFound=true

    But the work around doesnt do anything for personal firewall 2002.

    Any suggestions?

    Why worry about it, your firewall is doings it's job if it is blocking it. :)
