Firewall Blocking wireless internet
I have Vista on a laptop computer. My firewall is blocking my wireless internet connection. It has been connected before and my internet/router is still working, but my laptop is being blocked by the firewall. When I go to open the firewall it shows that Norton 360 firewall is on. When I try to open the firewall up to change the setting it states that it cannot access the firewall. I have tried to uninstall Norton 360 and it states that it cannot find the module for the uninstall. Does anyone have any suggestions? There are several suggestions for XP on how to correct the firewall from the DOS prompt but nothing for Vista.

You need the Norton Removal Tool to remove 360 .

Firewall Blocking
I followed the instructions above but it still will not uninstall. I still cannot access my firewall to turn it off either. Any other suggestions?
