:sad: Hi,

After installing Norton Security 2005 and following instructions under Windows Firewall will not shut off. I have SBC Yahoo as ISP.

Don't tell me to shut off Norton application (although I would like to)

Does anyone know how to prompt this application to obey the command OFF.

Is this a standalone machine, or part of a domain?

If standalone, are you logged in as Administrator?

Is the button greyed out, or is it just non-responsive when you attempt to disable the Windows Firewall?

If it is a stand alone, you have to go to control panel then security center and click the "turn off windows firewall selection box, click ok" the system tray function will not work if you have other apps running.

Sure way to turn it off.
Right click My Computer, Click Manage, Click Services and Applications, Click Services, Right Click Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing(ICS), Go to properties, Change Startup type to Disable, click Stop, and click OK.
