norton firewall v xp updates conflict

  david.h 10:50 22 Aug 2004

I have xp pro went to windows update site which normally works ok, downloaded the new update search windows updated software to scan for available updates kept getting different errors each time the scan finished checking my pc for updates.

After disabling norton firwall 2003 and re visiiting windows update all worked ok, I had set permissions to always trust microsoft by to no avail the only way now seems to temp disable nfw 2003 each time i visit ms updates.

anyone else got this problem [intending to use norton N/FW2005 when it comes out next month] hoping that will sort the issue.

Hi, Im having a similar problem (click here) however Norton Internet security and Anti-Virus 2004 both wont work and I cant get the new windows update downloader to work (just get not found errors)I have no Idea whats going on, but your not alone ;-(

one of the errors i was getting came up on ms knowledge base and now works ok.

fix is

1. control panel
2. internet options tab
4.trusted sites
5. click sites button
6.add the following web sites

click here

click ok

[I found going into my firewall and giving permit access to microsoft update made to difference to the problem]

Since loading Norton Firewall 2005 on my two computers running XP Pro and XP Home I cannot access windows update. I have added the addresses in the trusted sites to no avail.
Also tried turning off the firewall, still does not work.
Have also attemtped to follow the advice on Norton helpsite, again to no avail.

It seems as if they have not resovled the problem in 2005
Any ideas
