Firewall most likely. Disable this and then go online.

Go into Norton and click on "Norton Internet Security". Click on "Personal Firewall" and then click on the button that says "Turn Off". When asked, tell it you want to switch it off until the restart.

Please make sure your XP firewall is enabled before you disable third party firewalls to prevent you from being a guest in the malware section.

I've seen this problem many times before on other systems and usually it can be fixed by editing some of the Firewall Rules in Norton Internet Security (NIS) or deleting the Rules and allowing NIS to recreate them when the program is detected as wanting to access the Internet.

But in other cases the option is to uninstall and reinstall NIS.
