If I press Start, Help and Support, enter in ICF, I find that helpful and if you read all that, you pretty much discover what you can do with that.

Start | Settings | Control Panel | Network Connections | Right on ISP | Select Properties | Advanced Tab and check or uncheck the Internet Connection Firewall.

Hope this helps.

You can turn the XP Firewall on or off by going through the steps in Control Panel, but the built-in Software Firewall in XP only blocks Incoming probes by hackers. It Does Not stop Outgoing traffic from your computer reporting back to a Trojan Horse that may be installed on your computer. I would suggest Zone Alarm (Free), or better yet, a router if you have High Speed service.The router can be configured as a firewall and it will also allow you to share your internet connection with more than one computer.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
