Norton security blocking all Internet connections

Hi, i have a problem with Norton security v.22.8.0.50, since I installed it, Internet isn't working with any program. I tried disabling firewall and any other functionality of Norton, but the problem Is still there unless uninstall the product. What do I have to do? The pc is connected via Wifi to a 4G router and runs windows 10 Thank you!

Please try run Norton LiveUpdates several times until no updates found > re-start not under the influence of Fast Startup > repeat.

Do you have other security programs installed in addition to Norton?  Program conflicts can cause this.

No, there's no other security program

Re: Norton security blocking all Internet connections

Did this problem start after updating your earlier version of Norton? If this is a fresh install, what security did you have before and how did you remove it? You need to use a removal utility for that software  to avoid conflicts.

Are you posting here from another device connected to the same router? If not, try restarting the router.

The router is working with other devices. The computer is new, it came with a trial of McAfee. I will check the full uninstall, and I will try to connect via ethernet Thank you

Even unactivated trials leave things behind that can cause conflicts. You can find the McAfee removal tool here
