If a software one is installed there will be an icon in the system tray[next to the clock].
Place your mouse over the icons and a box will appear telling you what each one is, when you find the firewall right click on it and select disable or stop.
You do need to check you have the correct permissions to install software and/or disable the firewall, some companies deem it to be gross misconduct tampering with work PC's.

I've searched everywhere on the computer for firewalls, but can't find any, but this livebox just won't install coz of the firewall !! Do you have any other ideas for me to try ????

If you have, go to Start | Control Panel and click on the Security Center icon, have a check in the firewall section there

As a foot note; when you do eventually get up and running you should consider a firewall if you don't have one.
Follow the link in my sig to the downloads page, I personally use Sygate Personal Firewall - it's free as well.

I have seen issues with wanadoo (freeserve) and packard bell pc's where it would not install because of a registry restriction to do with part of the packard bell software. There was a patch on packard bells website for it. If it is a packard bell then try downloading and running this patch:
