AntiSpam not opening

Greetings all. Curious as to how many entries in the “blocked list” can be entered before it fails to open.ie... edit, add, delete. I spent the most part of a winter’s day adding groups of “spam addresses” via the Outlook plugin, totaling 23,000 addresses. Now when I try to “configure” my blocked list in the Norton program, Norton crashes and will not restart without a reboot. Any ideas???

Hello bigwrench9. Give the instructions in this article a shot, see if it corrects your issue. You can next follow the steps in the screenshot below to run the self-check on your install. It will detect and correct issues it finds.

Re: AntiSpam not opening

First of all, I apologize to soul asylum for not responding back sooner. The self check didn’t find any problems. I ran it several times. In response to Sunil GA, I have sadly been forced to uninstall Norton and return to GDATA. (not to be rude or anything like that, but Norton engineers should really take a look at the GDATA antispam part of their program. It’s very user friendly)
