Norton internet security was removed, avg installed. Could not up date avg, or access the internet.  I did a system restore, i can access the internet. But I cannot update AVG, I removed avg and installed Avast, cannot update, Avast reports that my firewall does not allow, Only have windows firewall. I cannot update java, I think that this has something to do with Norton internet security. Cannot update java, Malwarebytes.

try disabling the firewall to see if the programs will update. if they can you need to configure the firewall to unblock internet access for the particular software you are using

so you currently have no antivirus installed and java still won't update?
try reinstalling norton -
i have a feeling norton has changed your settings somewhere, they've done it to me before after uninstalling to give me the same issue and when i reinstalled symantec all was well again

before you try reinstalling norton run the norton removal tool - http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

just to see if there any any nasty norton bits still lurking around in the system

norton and symantec are that notoriously difficult to completely get rid of they have made their own tool to do the job!
