Use the following netsh command to turn the Firewall off:

netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off

Use the following netsh command to turn the Firewall back on:

netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on

Use the following netsh command to reset it back to its default settings:
 
netsh advfirewall reset

Either let Norton Manage your Firewall or remove Norton and use Windows Firewall. I would leave well enough alone if it's working OK.
