I had the same problems with Norton, Anti-virus was the culprit.

Is it the latest 2003 ver?

If not that could be why.

Also when installing Norton (symantec) reccomend that you clean boot or Safe boot when Installing any of their products,


Hope it help,
Gaz

What asks you for a supervisor password?

The manual instruction method, and the rnis.exe method, do not (to my knowledge) need passwords.

I sorted a computer out for a friend of mine that had exactly the same problem
Admin password
You will need to reboot and log on as the actual administrator account once your logged in as admin then open up the program and you should now have access. Now set it up to allow other users on your pc access.
When you have done this you should be able to reboot and log back on with your own account and now have access to it.

If you are going to get rid of it use the normal uninstall utility provided and reboot. If Norton Firewall is the ONLY Norton software you have loaded then flash up the registry editor and search for Norton Personal Firewall and delete all the entries then do a search for Symantec and delete all the entries. That should do it,

If it is NOT the only Norton Software you have then it is a case of doing a bit of manual registry removal.
If you go to the link that jazzypop provided and scroll down to the "manualy uninstall NIS and NPF" and follow the directions given
