Trying WoW, but cannot download

Okay, so I am trying to install World of Warcraft on my computer.

The game installed and I made an account and password. When I go to log in it starts to download(Blizzard) but cannot finish because it says I have a firewall up. I disabled Norton's firewall and that didn't help. So then I tried to enable the ports required to play WoW from my router(2 wire), and I am still having issues.

Any ideas?

Also, I am unsure where to find the information for Windows Vista on how to protect it from Malware and viruses. I want to take off Norton and use a different anti virus protection and firewall.

Anyhow, thanks for reading.


Edit to add; I uninstalled Norton, it was just a trial version. I installed Antivir and a spybot search and destroy. The only firewall I have is Windows and I already made an exception for the ports. Its still saying I am behind a firewall thou!
