Norton Security 2015 Firewall Will Not Block All Incoming Traffic

I just finished a very startling chat with Norton and found out that Norton Security 2015 has NO WAY of blocking all incoming internet traffic. You can selectively pick internet sites or known malicious sites; however, you cannot block all incoming (and turn on when you want) in this new Norton Security 2015 we just got handed us. Who, selectively, wants to block all the internet sites. It would take forever.

Now you can turn off the Norton Security 2015 Firewall and activate your Windows OS Firewall and stop ALL the incoming traffic; BUT, you can't with Norton Security 2015. Why was this choice taken from us in this last upgrade. They tell us it's what we wanted; however, that is hogwash.

And quite sadly, the redacted "Block All" function is only one of the many "hogs" that could some "wash" in the new and newly-updated products "pen"  ...

Now you can turn off the Norton Security 2015 Firewall and activate your Windows OS Firewall and stop ALL the incoming traffic;

Unfortunately, to do this, you have to uninstall Norton. You cannot activate the Windows firewall while Norton is installed. Just disabling the Norton firewall will not give you access to the Windows firewall.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
