    Does anyone know how to unblock my startup applications from accessing the internet?

    I have them allowed in the firewall list however they are still blocked. For me to unblocked them i have to close them all and reopen them.

    Its really annoying.

    thanks

    Add the executables in your startup to the firewall exception list. If that doesn't work then your pretty much screwed. OneCare doesn't even let my copy of Outlook access the net. Perplexed

    Yeah i've tried that... guess im screwed.

    Its a shame because now it looks as though i'll have to go back to Norton. I liked the idea of microsoft providing my antivirus and firewall all in one.

    I can't believe they have gone public beta with such a huge bug in it.

    Ah well

    Ok this mightn't work for you but it did for me. I uninstalled Office and reinstalled it then the firewall started saying it recognised all the apps again. Perhaps you could try something similar.

    HTH,
