I'm not sure what you mean
Firstly are you saying that you have Norton's Internet Security firewall and Windows Firewall on? If so, turn one of them off. Preferably the Windows Firewall because the NIS firewall is better. The Security Center should note that you have a third party firewall running. You do not need two software firewalls running.
That should stop you needing help on the Windows Firewall/ICS setting, but if not, I'm not sure what settings window you mean. Which tab under the Windows Firewall dialogue applet do you mean, General, Exceptions or Advanced?
Yes, I have both of them on. The problem is that I can't open the windows firewall to turn it off. When I try to even open the Windows Firewall, it gives me an error message saying it can't start the Windows Firewall/ICS service.
Do you know if there is a way to fix the problem or turn off the Windows Firewall through a command prompt, or something of the like?
In Control Panel, open up the Security Center.
Under ''Manage security settings for:'' click on ''Windows Firewall''.
With the Windows Firewall dialogue window open, under the General tab, click the Off option, then click OK.
If that doesn't work, click the Advanced tab, and click the button to Restore Defaults. OK out, then try again.
Let us know how you get on.
Sorry mark, we posted at the
same time, didn't realize you were here. LOL
Your link may help pin down the problem.
You too Mark, nice talking to you, I haven't
been in the XP forum as much lately because V&S has been busy. I hope you are all set with your retirement.
Yep, done and dusted
I'm a man of leisure now, and enjoying it.
I've not been around on the forums too much recently but I call in most days.
How are you doing?
Ohh, and sorry, Skimac, we don't mean to use your thread to pass the time of day, honest,
I've given you another option about the Windows Firewall below if mine or Rod's don't help. Let us know how you get on.
Been doing fine Mark, glad to see
your retirement is going well.
See if this Microsoft links helps
If neither of these work,
try this option Skimac.
Goto Start > Run, type in "services.msc", (without the quotes), and press OK.
In the Services dialogue, scroll down and look for "Windows firewall/Internet connection sharing (ICS)". Highlight it, right click it and select "Properties", and in the Startup type: change the option to disable.
Reboot, and see if that allows you access to the Windows Firewall option in Control Panel.
no, but this worked
I found this solution on another forum:
Start>Run...>type in 'cmd' (without quotes)>in the command prompt type 'netsh winsock reset' (without quotes)>reboot your computer
I'm glad you found a solution Skimac, and thanks for reporting back.
norton internet security and itunes
Open Norton Internet Security and click on the configure button and then click on the programs tab ...this will show a list of programs and their internet access. Here I bet you will see Itunes and block all for the control. Change this to permit and you should be able to access the music store.
