A1 : the default setting should be more than sufficient - if you use the Norton firewall, be sure to turn off the Windows Firewall.
Windows Firewall - Turn On or Off
A2 : the Norton Firewall will automatically monitor outbound connections. The default settings it implements when you install it will cover almost all your needs.
A3 : Use a complex password for your computer login, and all online accounts. Never share your password with anyone. Try not to use one password for everything.
Change Passwords | Create Strong Passwords | Microsoft Security
A4 : Don't muck with these settings. Your ISP has probably already set these up for you.
A5 : Let the Norton Firewall take care of this for you.
A6 : Use WPA2-PSK. Use a complex password. Choose not to broadcast your SSID - this will you less of a target.
Extra information : Keep Windows 7 and Norton updated. Run regular scans on your system. Keep good backups and images of your system and data. Don't be tempted to browse to sites of questionable quality.
