You do not want to close this port as this is the port used for, amongst other things, http traffic, i.e. web pages. If you block this port then you wont get any web traffic at all ont his port so no web pages. It is perfectly normal for norton to report this. Norton will monitor other ports and will advise you if it sees anything suspiciouse.

hope this helps :)
