Can anyone tell me how to create an exception in windows firewall so I can play my game. I have windows10 on 4 computers but my newest laptop wont go to my games site it says there is something wrong with the security certificate. I have been playing games on this games site for about 10 years with no real problems. I have norton security on this latest laptop, I have never liked norton
but decided to give it another chance on my latest laptop. Now I dont know if its the firewall or norton causing this problem but i'me biased against norton, still going to give it a chance though so i'll concentrate on creating an exception in the firewall first. Can someone tell me how to do this in windows10?:grin:

Right-click Search Everything and select run as administrator.

You can restart the computer and press F8 continuously. In the Advanced Boot Menu choose Safe Mode with Networking. Try the Norton Removal tool again, then find the leftover files, and right click them and choose Properties/Security tab/Advanced/
Take ownership of the file Full Control, then delete it.

I could'ent get into safe mode using the f8 key so I got into it by using msconfig in the command prompt and checked safe boot. I right clicked on the norton files and then clicked on open with which took them to a prefetch folder where I could delete them, I forgot you said click on properties which would have worked as well. I am now free of norton the laptop is now mine. Thanks all.
