How do you turn off popup alerts?


I have Norton Internet Security. Lately, I've been getting lots and lots of Security Alert popups from Norton. It is very disheartening to have to keep clicking OK to the many popups. How do I disable the popups? I want the program to block, but, I don't need to get alerted every time it does block. Please help me. I've even turned off Norton firewall and turned on Windows firewall. How do I handle this problem?

Listed below are the steps for disabling the alert popups These steps are for Firewall 2002 4.0 The steps are different for different versions and different releases of those versions As I don’t know which version you have, you may have to look on the the Symantec search page to find the steps for your version Type "disabling security alert popups" in the search box These are the same steps for Internet Security.
