  1. hi,
    i'm using a bit defender internet security 2009 anti virus software.
    when da firewall is enabled i can't access internet.it gives an error saying server not found.
    i'm using an ADSL connection and a modem.
    so when ever i access internet i disable the firewall and access.
    is this ok?
    why does this happen?
    and what can i do to fix it?

    i would be very kind if anyone out there can help me in solving the problem.
    best regards

    Uninstall it fully
    Restart
    Re-install it

    That's the easiest way to default all settings

    Also, disabling the 3rd party firewall may not be bad if Windows firewall is on
