Note that if your firewall is on, download will not start. Disable firewall and other security programs. If you have internet explorer or Mozilla Firefox, Click on the link where download starts. By clicking on the link, download will open in new window. It will first say "this can harm your computer" there are three options- Open, save and cancel. Click on save option. Your download will starts now. When your download is finished, you will find your downloads on downloads folder in my documents.

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.
