    Is anyone else using these 2? I am having a few compatibility issues, Norton Anti-virus refuses to start :(

    If anyone else has experienced this please let me know.

    Also Norton products have an anti tamper protection.In case you can open Norton and Pete suggestion Doesn't work try to disable that and see how it goes.

    Hi,

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe Norton AV has a mini-firewall built-in called "worm protection" or something similar aimed to sopt internet worms like "Slammer", etc.

    You should look under NAV options and disable this option if possible. That way, it will not conflict with your software firewall.

    Hope this helps.

    Everything is good now :) It was just the tamper protection, I'm guessing.
