Well Norton like other firewalls typically enter a learning faze. When you load source, It should ask if its ok to run online. (Dont use Norton so Im making generic directions) Otherwise you can go to options, program access. And there will be a list of all programs. There you can configure wether its 'Allowed', Auto, or disabled. If nortons not the only firewall you have.. PICK one. At last resort turn off nortan when playing online. (Kinda defeats the purpose, but firewalls are better used for the internet. Actually if you have Xp you really dont need Nortan. As long as you have a good Antivirus and current Spy and ad scanners.

I removed my norton and got Avast Antivirus, it's a simple right click disable when I want to play. I reccomend it, and it's free! By the way, most antiviruses will cause lag until disabled.
