Click on Norton Firewall's 'world' toolbar icon. Check 'disable'.

Should have 'Norton Personal Firewall' in your Progam Files folder.

Search for 'Norton ', click on Norton Personal Firewall'. If this doesn't appear in your search, looks like you haven't got it installed.

Apologies, from your thread header i was under the impression you had Norton Firewall.

Can't you disable Norton Antivirus?

Down on the taskbar, next to the clock. Hold the mouse over each thing, one should say Norton Firewall, double click that one to bring up the options.

Dear friends i am going to write the massage i get when i try to run limewire.
Limewire was unable to initialise and start, this is usally due to a firewall program blocking limewire access to the internet or loop back connection on the local machine.Please allow limewire access to the internet and restart limewire.

You really shouldn't be deactivating firewalls unless you are confident about what you are doing and that you won't need the firewall when it is down.

Anyway, to deactivate it you are first of all going to need to open the settings screen, one of the little icons next to the clock will be for a firewall and/or antivirus (if you are sure you have them installed and running) double clicking that will bring up the program screen, from there you should be able to see where to deactivate them.

Another word of warning, turning off your firewall (and perhaps anti virus also), then using limewire is an easy way to get lots of viruses.
