Hey guys!

Whenever I start up Minecraft, it doesn't show the update news, it just shows a grey screen with the HTML-code

"<html><body><font color="#808080"><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><center>Failed to update news<br>java.net.SocketException: Permission denied: connect</center></font></body></html>"

Also I can't connect to servers anymore, while I always could. It gives the same error: "java.net.SocketException : Permission denied: connect"

This is since I have installed Norton 360 5.0 on my pc, but I have allowed everyting having to do with Java and Minecraft in my Firewall...

I have also runned CCleaner since I saw that suggestion online, but it didn't help...

Does anybody have a solution to this?
