    me too I am here because I disabled my firewall to post this. I tried at my neighbors house and the same thing her norton popped up. I have the ip address and it is from a corp in scranton, have the name of person behind this don't know what good it will do though, but if anyone wants it pm me in the next 30 minutes as my firewall will be back up and I won't be able to view bhw any more :( I hope it gets fixed and I hope you kick the azz of whoever did this :(

    You can do a couple of things to try to un-restrict BHW.

    There used to be a web assistant toolbar built into the IE browser that should option you the "allow popups and advertising".

    You can check your current Norton rules and see if changing any of them will allow you to come here.

    I highly suggest that you do eventually get a better Anti Virus program.

    nah. but thanks.
    Norton is scared of the black theme.
    They want everything brightly colored.

    It's a false-positive, Norton blows. I would recommend kaspersky or linux.

    Norton thinks that the internet is a virus! Get rid of it, It eats RAM like
    nobodies business and lets all the real malware through the door.
    you need a real AV like Kaspersky or ESETnod32.

    I also am a huge fan and only use Kaspersky. I highly recommend it and am pretty sure they have a free non supported download.

    I have had it on my PC which is 5 years old now and it has NEVER been infected.
