Every once in a while, Norton Auto-Protect gives me this box: I am well aware of what this means (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=828401) but I can't understand why my internet doesn't work after the block occurs. The box appears only when downloading torrents and after a block occurs, the torrents are still downloading - yet I cannot get onto Safari, FireFox, Mail, even Calculator! Is this the method of protection - to turn off the internet. If so how come my torrents are still downloading? Is it safe to Disable Auto-Protect?
