It would also help to know specifically which firewall you're referring to. The one built into XP (Windows Firewall), or a third-party one like ZoneAlarm?

For one thing Jeremy, its ok that you had to disable one as you should only have ONE firewall and anti virus program. If you have more they will fight with one another and its likely that you'll have problems such as a loss of internet. And by down do you mean not working? Can you clarify whats now disabled and whats not, my recommendation is to disable windows firewall and have nortons enabled. Please tell us what you do in your next post and what is going on.
thanx
James

I use Norton as well, and you should disable your Windows firewall and use Norton instead.

You can do that by:

Start -> Control Panel -> Windows Firewall -> General Tab -> Click on Off -> Click on Ok.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Good Luck! :whistling:
