Re: Norton detects SKYPE as a worm

Norton is very bad for false positives. 2005 is way out of date anyways. My suggestion: use Firefox, Avas Antivirus and Komodo firewall. That combination makes web browsing very safe. When Norton is uninstalled,  there seems to be a huge weight lifted off your system.

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

  • if you cannot delete, then just quarantine. but if you scan again but still there are several viruses detected, you may have a replicating worm on your PC
  • replace norton, try kaspersky anti-virus or bit defender

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!
