Make sure your firewall is not blocking it. Also the latest version is 8.0.0812, check you have that as it fixes some major connection issues.

EWWWW Norton.... FYI, Norton will let more viruses and hackers through than it will stop. I recommened getting Trend Micro PC Cillin. You can download a 3 month free trial from Trend Micro

You can send me a Windows Remote Assistance invite if you want me to take a look that way.

Send it to the email address on my signature image...
