Whenever an application that connects to the Internet is changed, Norman Personal Firewall will ask to confirm if you have updated or changed the application in question. This is a security measure to prevent malicious programs from connecting to the Internet from your computer.
During the last few months, Microsoft has released several updates to Internet Explorer. As a result, Norman Personal Firewall will ask the user whether he/she still wants to permit Internet Explorer to access the Internet.
If the user deny this request, Internet Explorer will lose internet access.
ou will have to edit the firewall rule for Internet Explorer, and change it from deny to allow.
