To temporarily turn off Norton Protection, you need to log on to your computer with an Administrator user account.  For Standard user accounts, some of the settings may appear disabled (grayed out).

In the notification area on the taskbar, right-click the Norton icon, and then click the following:

Disable Auto-Protect

Disable Firewall

In the Security Request window, in the Select the duration drop-down list, select the duration for which you want to turn off Norton Protection.

Click OK.

Norton turns its security features back on automatically after the duration that you specified in the Security Request window has been reached. If you want to turn Norton back on manually prior to the end of the specified time period, right-click the Norton icon in the notification area on the taskbar and then click Enable Auto-Protect/Enable Firewall.
