Hi, CLC. Norton's firewall is one of the if not the  best, in the business.

Check the test results here, https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/

You're welcome ! Fwiw, I have always left my Smart Firewall set to on.

In other words, left on automatic, and program control also set to automatic.

Never had a problem with leaving it to Norton to protect me.
