"Norton Internet Security and Firewall are blocking many affiliate
links, ad banners, AdWords, Adsense and even text links. It may even be
blocking your own site logo or your family pictures if they are a certain
When I say "blocked" I mean erased, wiped out and invisible. It leaves
a blank white spot where the banners or text links should have been,
making it look like your site is defective or you are missing information. Norton does not just block ads, it literally strips the source code out
of the page."
Very good article and important!
This information is very important to all internet web sites that rely
on some form of advertising to support their site. This program will harm
your hard work to build and add content to make your site better even if
you do not use advertising to support your site. Go to the About.com site to read the complete article

Is this unfair restraint of trade and
as well as malicious altering of your Web sites?
Disclaimer - if Norton has made any
recent changes to address these issues I am unaware of it.
This applies only to users of Norton Internet Security products, not
users of just the Norton Anti-Virus products.

If you are using any Norton product that has the Ad Blocker feature you can
choose to let ads show on select sites. We recommend that you allow ads on

with what is going on in the field of interest you have by showing the new

improved of what ever that you have an interest in. Plus the ads many times
are how the site is paying for the info that you are there for in the first
place. If they cannot pay for the content you are using the site may stop
improving and adding to the content or even worst the site mite go out of
