Question about Norton Internet Security 2005 (37648246941) for PC

2 Answers

Symantec Client Firewall is blocking my Internet connection

It is definitely the Norton Internet Security which is blocking the connection.
I tried everything: switching the computer off, disconnecting and reconnecting the modem, checking all cables, went through Norton Internet Security Block Traffic/Allow Traffic - with no results.
However, when I disabled the Norton, I could connect to the Internet.
Please instruct me on how I can restore my internet connection without disabling the Norton. Thank you.

I would recommend disabling the Norton firewall portion of the software, keep it's antivirus side if you wish, and use Windows Firewall for best compatibility.

Well, what you can try is to uninstall Norton and see if that REALLY is the problem. The other thing you can do is tweek the Norton out settings. Or maybe (if you have vista) your windows defender is on as well. I have Norton 360 and when my windows defender is on, Norton goes loopy. I don't know why, but I guess it's that they can't run at the same time because then they will like fight each other. Anyways, it's better to get full protection (like Norton 360) than just Norton Internet Security.

Anyways, hope this helps.

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

Cannot connect to internet - get told cannot connect the web page. No addresses connect....


it is almost certainly your firewall or other security software blocking the connection Make sure that your firewall program is configured to allow internet access.Besides personal firewalls, other security programs, including Norton or Symantec Antivirus, can block internet access or cause other connection issues, especially after the browser is updated.

Unable to install Norton internet security 2009


Do you use firefox?
firefox usually has problems with norton.This kind of problem is usually down to your firewall.See [http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Cannot+connect+after+upgrading+Firefox|Cannot connect after upgrading Firefox}
You need the Symantec hotfix which is necessary after Firefox upgraded to 3.5.1

Cannot activate norton 360


Hi Uptonmark,

I have come across this problem on a norton 360 antivirus solution before. It would also get pretty complicated if you're using vista. However, one of the first things you should do when using any antivirus is to tell the windows OS (be it vista or XP), that your anti virus is taking over the firewall + antivirus activities of the computer. So, what you might wanna do is:

1. Launch norton 360 and check to see if your outbond traffic is being blocked. Your outbound traffic to connect to the server should NOT be blocked and sometimes in 360, it is blocked by defualt.

2. Go to the control panel. Under security, define norton 360 as your firewall and anti virus. If you can afford it, disable windows firewall (since norton 360 is taking care of that problem).

3. After these settings, restart computer (for any process changes to take effect) and try to connect and see.

Hope the above suggestions help. Also, when defining your whitelist (a list of programs that are allowed to traffic in and out through your firewall), try to allow as much as programs possible (those that you deem important enough(, to prevent such an incident like this from ever happening again. Or you could take the route that i took... get bitdefender. Less complicated and more advanced security options. Norton 360 is good too, but for my personal computer, i;d stick with bitdefender any day. Hope the above helps. Let me know if the suggestions work out, else i can instruct in more detail. Thanks.

Regards,

Techomancer.

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!
