    I installed Limewire and when a Norton Internet Security warning popped up saying "Limewire is attempting to access the internet", I clicked "Block Always" by mistake. Now I can't download any files from Limewire.

    Anyone know how to undo the block?

    Thanks.

    Go into Norton Antivirus and add Limewire to your safe list

    Or, reinstall Limewire

    No it wouldn't. That link has nothing to do with unblocking limewire from a firewall....
