    A Norton firewall will not let my HP Officejet L 7680 All-in-one install on my network. Do I have to uninstall Norton just to have this as a network printer?

A firewall should not stop you from connecting with your printer as it does not handle requests from that type of interface. If your printer does not communicate with your comptuer check first if the USB is properly connected and see if the found new hardware wizard comes up when you plug in the printer. That will tell you if the computer sees the printer at all. Next thing to try is to plug it in another computer to be sure that it works. You can also try plugging the printer in the back of the computer instead of in front if that is where you have it.

Dell AIO 922 printer cannot communicate with computer after Norton Internet Security installed


Norton changed your firewall settings to block that port. Open norton and look for Settings then manage firewall, then program rules...look for your printer someplace on that list and use the dropdown list to change it...if that doesn't work let me know...

I have Norton 360 5.0 on my pc and for some reason my Malwarebytes always comes up and tells me that error with chrome connecting to certain sites... I've seen statements saying to check my firewall...


Hi,

I suggest you to use only one Antivirus program on your computer. Installing more than one Antivirus program will cause serious problems to your computer in its performance. I'm sure that Norton 360 is a program that has all the elements of Malware Bytes.

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.

Can't figure out how to open the UDP port number 427


Don't know why this becomes an issue with these type of HP printers but i think ive worked a way around it...
Heres how you do it: (XP)
Control Panel>Printers and faxes>
Then select "Add printer" and choose the first option (Local printer attached to this computer)
An errormessage will appear saying they were unable to find printer. Click next to find the printer manually...

Now select "Create a new port" and choose standard TCP/IP... Ignore the list of different types of printers, now select "From Disk" and then click next... Once The computer recognizes the printer, it all should be in order...

Hope this could help you...!

Norton 360 just installed and now yahoo messenger won't start


Hi, This may be a little help, i used norton 360 with vista and had a few problems with msn, i have since removed norton for other reasons but in the settings or tools there is an exceptions page where you can choose the programs that nortons can ignore if you tell it to allow msn it will then work ok. I believe nortons sees msn as a threat because it has in and out communications therefor it shuts msn down. I hope this helps if not try avg8 it works very well with vista.

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

Trying to download norton 360, but I'm getting a communication error as if there is a firewall preventing communication. The windows security centre (security essentials) shows the firewall switched on,...


I wouldn't worry too much about turning it off to do the download from Symantec's site. Just don't go surfing around while it's downloading. After the download turn it back on. Norton will turn it off anyway when you install 360.

You may want to uninstall the AdAware before you install 360 also just to avoid possible conflicts.

It just won't print!


try to make un-install drivers for the printer, then reboot and install driver agin.
I think, it might be your driver currepted and cause this problem.

Please post your feed-back.

Printer Stopped Working


Check that norton allows access to the printer via the firewall as the printer talks to the computer as well.
