Lost Network connection

Hi, can anyone please help me with a very frustrating problem i am experiencing at the moment. After allowing Norton a remote connection i can no longer see any network connections, wireless or wired. This of course means no internet connection. I tried system restore but get error message and wont allow me to restore to any date.

could be a firewall from Norton blocking it all?
