Norton Anti virus 2008

Posted: 06-28-2008, 01:15 PM
I keep getting the warning from Norton that it has blocked an intrusion
attempt by "MS ASN1 Integer Overflow TCP". What does this mean and what can I
do to stop it?

Sorry guys, the Symantec notice is much too complicated for an ordinary
person to understand. Also it does not include a fix from Microsoft for VISTA
users.

Hi, man.

I've been through the same problem. In fact, i kept getting different
intrusion warnings from norton since i've connected my cablemodem directly on
my pc. That happened on XP and Vista.

The curious thing about it is when my pc was connected on my router, no msgs
appeared.

What i found out (and it appears to be the response so far) is that Norton
disables Windows Firewall by default. So, i went to control panel and enabled
it.

Other thing i did was turninf off everything on Sharing and Discovery menu,
in Network Place. (This screen:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...5dcad1033.mspx)

After doing those things, i stopped getting those annoying messages. I hope
you can understand what i did and try it.

Good Luck.
