Windows Firewall with Norton Internet Security

I have a three seat license and have this product installed on an older Vista desktop, a Windows 7 Desktop and a Windows 8.1 laptop.  When installing Norton on the Vista machine I was advised to turn off the Windows firewall.  The windows firewall was on by default and Norton did not advise me to turn if off on the Windows 7 or 8.1 device.  My question is whether the Windows firewall conflicts with Norton and whether it is just with certain versions of the OS.

Window Firewall Off. 
Windows Firewall Service On.

On Windows 7 and later, Windows will automatically turn off the Windows Firewall and cede all control when a third-party firewall, like Norton, is installed.

Thanks for the responses.  Makes sense.  Just getting a little tired of the "warnings" I get on the Vista machine.  

Cheers!

What warnings are you seeing?  Are they coming from Windows or Norton?

Windows.  Bubble from systray on startup, but not every time.  I also get a warning from a remote desktop application I use.

It looks like this may be an alert generated by TeamViewer.  This seems to be a fairly common issue, judging by the topics posted on the TeamVIewer forums.  You might try the fix suggested in the last post here, to see if it resolves the problem:
