but your firewall is over in Control Panel via Settings via the Start button.
I have a Compaq Presario 2104US with Windows XP Home edition. My last Windows was 3.1 and it came with a manual. I do much better flipping pages than using the little box of "help" online. I am trying to get updates but the system tells me to log onto the internet and try again. Trouble is the "remote access" says I am online and the clock is ticking. I am guessing there's a conflict of the internet security apps.
If I had the time, I would get a book and hope it was a "good" book (not just a throw-it-out-for-the-buck "book") that would cover my question.
I want to alternately test shutting down the vendor installed Windows Firewall and the Norton and the ZoneAlarmPro 4. I think the Windows and Norton must be on by default and are in conflict with ZoneAlarm. I have clicked down several rabbit holes and keep losing the trail.
Please anyone know the 1-2-3 menus to Window's Firewall. I found the listing for the Norton trial-copy, even the ZoneaAlarm under "Start"/"MyPrograms" but not finding what I expect to see as the "Explorer" index. My mind set is not seeing/understanding the layout.
I'll keep playing but now testing the idea of making this the new doorstop.
