    It's in services.msc (you just need to run that)
    But the best way, is to uninstall it :)

    I'm sure it's in Start-->Run--> services.msc

    Unless you are just speaking about, opening the Symantec (ie Norton) Firewall up, and changing the settings to low or something (that might do as well)

    Oh an exception ruling

    Yes it's in the firewall settings in there somewhere
    I really don't know (although I know it exists!) because I detest Norton !

    Yep that'll do it
