I have Norton 2004 Anti virus. I do not want to use the Firewall. Every 1 to 2 min I keep getting a popup "Security Alert" saying my computer is at risk because the Firewall is not turned on. How do I shut this Popup off. I have a Sony Vaio with windows XP Security pack 2. Help Dock 61:(

The Pop up is from Norton (Symantec) it pops up every 30 second and even if you click OK a new one pops up in 30 seconds. Thank you, Dock 61

It must be Norton Internet Security then if it has a firewall. Why don't you use the firewall?

I still us a dial up service. Every time I connect I get a different IP address. Norton sees this as a threat and will not let me connect, So I disable the Firewall and then it lets me connect. Any suggestions? Dock 61
