I removed Norton and now think It must be a virus but I can get my firewall to go on.  I tried for several days, MS fix it and cmd reset and nothing is working.  I can't connect to the internet at all so have been using a usb to dl spyware and avast to help.  My connections show excellent but the firewall won't turn on.


When I reboot the firewall is on for like 5 seconds then goes off.  I saw another post here that is similar to mine.  Here is the link.  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/462964/windows-xp-home-sp-3-cant-turn-on-firewall-after-virus/


Can Norton's firewall still be hidden somewhere.  Can I reset the firewall somehow?


I would greatly appreciate any thoughts and help!  Thank you!

Hey Thanks but I was able to fix it with the use of combofix.


Thank you all anyway!  I think you're all wonderful helping us and those in need.
