  1. Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.

  2. Click Turn Windows Firewall on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  3. Click Off (not recommended), and then click OK



    Make certain that your Norton Firewall is on before you turn off windows firewall (or shortly after) Turning off Windows Firewall might make your computer (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage from worms or hackers.



    Hope this helps!

How to allow ping request through Norton Internet Security 2010 Smart Firewall

When Norton Internet Security is installed it will take over control of the Windows Firewall. So if you need to make changes to the computers firewall you will need to make the changes in Smart Firewall.

Below is the steps that you will need to go through to allow incoming echo Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) traffic through the Smart Firewall.

Note these are the Windows Vista and Windows 7 steps. If you have Windows XP the begining steps may be different but the final options you are looking for should be the same.

1. Click Start - Programs - Norton Internet Security - Norton Internet Security

2. Click on the "Settings" link in the Network section

3. Scroll down until you see the "Smart Firewall" section

4. Click on the "Configure" link for the Program Control option

5. Scroll down until you see the "TCP/IP Ping Command" option and click on the drop down to change it to "Allow".

6. Apply, then OK

At this point you should be able to ping this computer from another computer in the network. If you still have trouble you may want to check your other network settings and make sure you do not have any other programs that could be blocking ping requests to the computer.

My laptop keeps telling me that my antivirus and firewall are turned off. When I check my Norton, it says it is on. I also just had an instance where my computer said my version of windows 7 is not genuine...


The norton issue can be resolved for free, by calling Norton. I suggest that some question got answered wrong during install, that indicates to Windows that another antivirus and firewall system is in charge. Call Norton.

On the genuine Windows thing, you have to go online and register your version and activate the OS with Windows. Clerical in nature, since you have ligitimate version.... Still needs to happen.

Also, be sure to update the critical updates often, same with antivirus defenitions.

Norton sercurity is not responding on my computer it does not start up and called my Internet provider they said norton my be blocking my Internet access by the firewall please help


You can easily disable firewalls in your computer however what I would suggest doing first is ensuring firewall is turned off for windows, If using XP: Go to Start/Control panel/Firewall and choose off Not Recommended
For Vista/Win7 Go to Start/Control Panel/System and Security/Windows Firewall/To the left hand side Turn Windows Firewall On or Off turn off.
If this does not help Here is a direct link,Just read Forum. Hope this helps http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic109836.html

Which antivirus is best for window 7 ?


It's all subjective, different people have different idea's. I don't like Norton or Mcaffee because the slow PC's down.

I use AVG (Free), Window's firewall (Free), Window's Defender (Free) and Spybot search and destroy (Free) You've probably already got Windows firewall enabled. You can download the others from Filehippo.com.

Firewall


You may find out that Norton is causing the block and not the firewall. To disable the Windows firewall do the following:


1) Click on Start then control panel
2) Click on Windows Firewall
3) Click on the Exceptions tab and see if Windows Live is listed and checked.
4) If not, click add program and add Windows Live

If it is there and checked then you can disable the firewall by clicking on the General tab and selecting Off from the firewall screen.
4) Finally, click OK

If none of this works then try turning off Norton. If that lets you log in then you will need to add Windows Live as an exception to Norton.

Good luck
