firewall problem

I have problem with Norton firewall & can't seem to find the cause, pages are slow loading, they seem to hang & then slowly appear with graphics appearing one at a time but if I turn off the firewall then pages load in a second as normal, explorer is selected in the 'internet access ' box .
I have scoured the settings but can't remember changing anything that could have caused this either,

firewall problem

An full uninstall and reinstall of NIS may solve the problem but failing that I have no idea what could be causing it.

You could change to ZoneAlarm (even the free version) which I have had no problems with in the past 3 or so years I have been running it.

thanks for that,
tried a reinstall but no different, think I will try zone alarm instead, my other drive runs o.k. with exactly the same settings strangely enough
