How do I change firewall settings to allow programs to run?

First time poster. I believe either my firewall or anti virus is blocking certain programs from connecting to the internet. Example, my itunes and ie won't connect to the internet, but i can still browse with firefox. I have the basic windows 7 firewall and ad-aware. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
