Default Norton Personal Firewall 2003

I am running Windows 98 SE on a Pentium 3 (550Mhz) machine with 768MB of memory. Last year I ran Firewall 2002 with no problems, I am trying to load Firewall 2003 and it's driving me nuts ! It loads apparently perfectly and then asks for a reboot , Windows then grinds to a halt when it loads WPSRBND.386 which seems to be to do with bi directional printing.
When I uninstall Firewall 2003 , Windows loads normally.
Symantec support suggested gettiing rid of the offending file but this doesn't sounf particularly sensible as I do need the bi-directional print facility.

Anyone any ideas,please

why don't you just use the 2002 edition.
I had replaced my 2003 edition with Zone Alarm
1. it's free
2. it has very little hassles
3. it works:

My opinion: Get rid of all Norton products and go with McAfee.

Dont bother with Norton Firewall and use ZoneAlarm or Sygate. They both run well and should have conflicts with other files.
