    Symantec doesn't like GT. It sees it as an ad and blocks the threads from being read. If you can't see the threads you can't read them. I had to turn ad blocking off to access the forum. Hope this helps someone. Shel;g

    Hey bigdawg,
    I run Norton Internet Security and haven't had any problems accessing GT (or any site). I'm guessing it must be your configuration?
    FWIW I don't have "Parental Controls" enabled (no kids living at home).
    Under "Ad Blocking", with the two boxes to check; I have "Turn on PopUp Window Blocking" checked, but not the "Turn on Ad Blocking" box.

    It was the ad blocking that prevented the access to GT and to Fox News.com Since I turned ad blocking of everything is ok. Thanks
