Speedup uTorrent client with Norton and McAfee Firewall Tweaking


Make sure that the following are set in your NIS to ensure that peers can connect to you and prevent intrusion prevention warnings.

Make sure uTorrent is added to the NIS firewall and contains these two rules:
  1. Inbound Rule to permit TCP and UDP connections from any computer
  2. Outbound Rule to permit TCP and UDP connections to any computer
You must also make sure that you deselect the following in the Advanced Security Settings this is required even if the port forward test gives a positive result.
  1. Stealth Blocked Ports
  2. Invalid TCP Destination Port
  3. Invalid TCP Source Port
In Norton you must also Deselect MS Windows H.323 BO (2) signatures on the Intrusion Prevention Signature Exclusions page of the Intrusion Protection Advanced Configuration

Norton Firewall is delaying World of Warcraft patch


I would turn OFF the Norton Firewall and then download your patch. If you have a complete Norton Security System you might have to turn all of it off. Then when the patch is downloaded turn everything back on and do a virus scan to make sure nothing got in while things were turned off. Norton and McAfee are the 2 most annoying programs made. When I run my windows hard drive(s) I use free stuff and I haven't had any issues with them.

Firewalls


Hi,

It's advisable to use only 'ONE' firewall at a time. If you try to use multiple firewall at a same time, it would affect your outbound connections as well as inbound traffic.

Note - Advisable to disable your windows firewall, if you want to use Zonealarm or Avg firewall.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Norton 360 Download



But first you can try going to internet explorer==tools--internet options and there go to security and privacy and in those 2 options you will find you can disable popup blocker, accept alll cookies, turn security level to low or zero and press apply==ok to lower all security which stops the download.

Having done that, when you click the download button keep the Ctrl key pressed down

Thats the 1st thing to try

If that does not work, May be you have a firewall blocking, you may need to disable windows
firewall, or the existing anti-virus's firewall

Try uninstalling or disabling existing anti virus software
then try to download keeping Ctrl key pressed as you click the download button

If that does not work-it probably will-

Go to "contact us" on the page where you downloaded after purchase, and send message stating
your payment transaction ID, product key, and the exact error you are getting, they will repair it. They do store your product key online, ask them

I hope that was of some help. Get back to me if you have any more questions

Norton antivirus 2008


Yes, Norton will do this.. one reason I will not advise any of my clients to purchase anything from Norton anymore.. If you are using XP, you should really just install the Norton AV solution and do NOT install the Security Version..

Basically, you are probably running 3 firewalls now, and it is going to cause you all kinds of trouble in the future.. you could disable the XP firewall and see if that will repair the damage, but to tell you the truth (from experience!) Norton may still give you trouble..

My suggestion? Uninstall Norton completely, return it to the store, and if you really want Norton, then purchase only the AV solution. Then let XP be your firewall.. especially since you are running behind a NAT'd device (your Linksys).. you really do not need the extra firewall running, regardless of what anyone tells you.. (note that I am a network engineer, Cisco Certified, and do know what I am talking about here..:)

Also, since this is a WiFi connected computer, make sure that you have WEP, WAP, or another encryption running on your Wireless network.. this would concern me more than anything, since I would not need access to your computer (reason for a firewall) to steal your data..

Have a safe and Happy Holiday Season!

Can,t unstiall norton


Norton Internet Security 2004/2005 has an effective firewall. This is in addition to the Windows firewall. Firewalls monitors and restricts information that travels between your computer and a network or the Internet and provides a line of defense against someone who might try to access your computer from outside the Firewall without your permission. In this case the windows firewall was disabled and Norton Firewall was the main one. When some program from your computer tries to connect to the internet, Norton Internet Security gives a prompt, which has options to allow or block the access. Many times the recommended option is to block the access. So be careful to see what you are blocking internet access before clicking OK. Click the Norton Security icon at the bottom right corner in your system tray. On the pop up window, first check if you have not clicked ?Block Traffic? button. As this will block all internet access. If that is ok, maybe the program has been blocked access and has to be unblocked manually. But it was not easy to find where was the blocked list. But here is it location. Go to Norton Internet Security > System and Settings and this is what you see ... Then you see that the Personal firewall is turned on to protect from unauthorized access to spyware, adware and other unwanted software. Click ?Configure? button. Go to Programs and scroll down the list for Manual Program Control. There you will see the individual internet access settings for each individual program. And you see that Mozilla Firefox/Internet Explorer setting shows ?Block All?. From the drop down list select ?Permit All? and now open Firefox. It works! And he is back to using firefox as his default browser again. Now you can scroll through the entire list and individually set the programs to allow and block internet access. Now you may fix some programs not working with the internet which you might have blocked by mistake. You can also set some allowed programs to block. I hope this tip helps. Now figure out the Custom option yourself!
