Firewall may not support XP SP2

I have installed XP SP2 with the default firewall disabled (OS: XP Home, using Norton 2004 Pro Firewall) and have a few problems that I can't seem to figure out. (1) Java doesn't work, even on trusted sites. (2) My Norton firewall control panel utilizes Active-X which does not update (error of: Active-X not authorized on this Web page).
I would recommend uninstalling and re-installing your Norton firewall. Also, check with Symantec to make sure you have the latest version and that it supports SP2.
