I'm using XP Media edition for OS, Office 2003 for word etc processing. When I use it and do some copy and pasting from the net I get an alert from Norton that MS Word is attempting to access the internet. It says:
:!: Low Risk
WINWORD.EXE is attempting to access the Internet.
-This program has been modified since it was last used.
Path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\
Date/Time <current date and time>
Remote Address: : http (80) <<this changes each time

What do you want to do?
Allow always (recommended)

Is this normal? :blink: I used to follow the recommendation of Norton, but then I noticed the page it was accessing changed each time. What could be modifying my program? I'm tired of battling spyware and viruses. :techsupport:
