yes. please turn off the winows firewall.windows firewall monitors only inbound communications whereas the norton firewall monitors both inbound and outbound communications.
And also you cannot have two firewalls running in a system,they might conflict with each other.After all,symantec is specialized in providing antivirus and firewall solutions.it's better to go with them.

When I turn off the XP firewall I get constant pop up boxes from norton with security alert and asking what I want to do..(permit, block etc.)
It got to the stage where I just dragged the popup box to the corner of my screen and ignored it...(my rules file is full and these popups were just becoming a pain). Since turning the XP firewall back on these popups have stopped.
I recently did a complete scan (norton AV, adware, and spybot ) and came up clean.

what is the version of NIS you use? is it 2004 or 2005?
You can try doing a program scan under norton personal firewall in NIS.refer this document for doing the same
you can also try restoring the general and firewall rules in NIS so that you don't get a lot of pop-ups and all the default rules are restored back with utmost protection.refer this doc for the same
the reason why you are getting pop-ups from norton is that you are alerted whenever a prog is trying to access the internet.the personal firewall will monitor all the communications of that prog with the network.
So,you must permit valid prog and block which are not valid.
any doubts reg this,please post!I will be glad to help you.

Just recently I cleaned out my hard drive and reinstalled everything (I had problems installing service pack 2 and nothing else seemed to help).
Finally, I got service pack 2 to work, but now after running live update for Norton Internet Security and then restarting windows, the computer wants to load up in safe mode.
My question: Is my problem with the two conflicting firewalls (Windows XP and NIS) or is it something else...please help
