Remove a Friewall Rule Norton Internet Security 2004

I added a personal firewall rule in Norton Internet Security 2004. Why I did it I do not remember - I don't normally "fiddle". I can think of no good reason for the rule being there. I'm worried it might be doing more harm than good, also it sends me annoying alerts all the time.

The problem is I can't delete it. I can't delete it because I can't find it. The rules under Personal Firewall|Advanced|General rules have no names. The name in the  alert for the rule doesn't appear to appear anywhere.

    Hello Louverril =)

    Just Restore the Default Rules in NIS and that will delete ur manually created rules from there :)

    Restoring the default firewall rules in Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2004

    Tried these instructions.

    First the only Norton Internet Security folder I could find was under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINNT\Application Data\Symantec\Norton Internet Security. Which seemed strange. I pasted the exe there and double clicked it but I'm still getting the warnings.

    No the only one unde rprogram files is Symantec/Norton Antivirus.

    I have tried the manual proces for program rules before. This didn't work anyway this is a general rule not a program rule?

    Open Norton, highlight firewall, go to configure, bottom right corner of window, then under programs tab remove the setting that you apllied to this particular thing.

I installled SP4 also - just before the re-insrtall now I can't turn on intruder detection. PLease see me other question about Norton for the time being. If |I get this issue fixed then I'll come back to the rules.
