SOURCE: Three Firewalls

You can't 'uninstall' the Windows Firewall, just deactivate it. Another option is to turn off the modem firewall (the strongest of the three, now two) and to activate the Windows one (the weakest but most annoying one). Now you stated that you can't use Internet Explorer but everything else was ok, skip IE, use Firefox or Opera.
Good luck!

Problem connecting to Gnutella network Bearshare 5.2.5


Hi,
This happens often when using Norton & updating. All you need is to remove the previous 'exception rule' and re-add it, so remove BearShare & re-add it as an exception for Norton. Only run one firewall. So choose between Norton & XP's firewall. The reason for this is Norton & XP's firewall clash, & cause problems including less security.

Let us know if you need further clarification.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Skillground error 357


i've tried (for several days now) to download the software, but everytime i click "download & play" nothing happens
(it looks like the 'page' just keeps refreshing it self for several minutes, ending in a "error code 357" message!

I contacted skillground numerous times , and thou they are helpful in their replies.. they keep saying that its my router and/or firewall that prevents the software from downloading.. BUT

even when i disable the router (running the internet cable direct from the "wall plug" into my pc) , and disableing my firewall (Norton) (i have even tried uninstalling the Norton).... its still the same problem

I've allowed cookies... set the internet security to minimum ..disabled the router and Norton firewall, ..removed the skillground 'program' and even tried to create another account ...but its still the same problem ... so i've ran out of idea's

but have you tried checking (in addition to your router, and norton firewalls) the built-in vista firewall?

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center


Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

Norton keeps blocking my router because it thinks a particular website is introducing a "Portscan" worm. It then blocks all access to any website for 30 minutes! Patrick


If you are running XP service pack 2 or higher you have the Windows firewall installed.
Windows firewall will always conflict with a third party firewall and despite the fact Norton informs you the Windows firewall is disabled it's not.
Norton is a serious resource hog, consider removing Norton and going with one of the free antivirus apps like AVG 8.0 or Avast.
Enabling the Windows firewall and using a router will protect you, all modern routers have a built in hardware firewall.

Fire walls


Norton likes to take over windows firewall but it will not hurt to run both.
