Norton Internet Security is a security software suite specifically designed to protect your computer from online security problems. Norton Internet Security includes a firewall that prevents programs from connecting to your Internet connection unless you have a specific exception in place for the software. This prevents Trojans, viruses and other malware from establishing a connection to transfer sensitive data, download more malicious files and other problems.

    Click "Norton Internet Security" in the main menu of the Norton Internet Security software.

  2. 2

    Choose "Settings."

  3. 3

    Choose the "Configure" button. Click "Personal Firewall."

  5. 5

    Choose "Program Control" to get to the options menu to select the programs that can go through the Norton firewall. Select your program from the list provided.

  6. 6

    Click "Allow" and "OK." This program can now access the Internet through the firewall.
