Cancel the help. I figured out that Comodo Firewall was blocking me from getting online so I deleted it and plan to reinstall.

I would not reinstall Comodo or any other third party Firewall software. The Firewall that comes with Windows will work just fine. If you only use the computer on your own home network and do not take it to public hot spots, your router will suffice in protecting you, so you really have no need to enable the firewall when on your home network.

Awesome advice Greg62702. I never had one but I was told to get one from my brother and he's into computers a little more than I am. I never had one on my last computer and never had any issues. With this computer I do hop on public hot spots a handful of days every month with my business. Do you think I will be alright without a third party firewall software in that case?

People think all because Windows does not prompt you on outgoing connections that get blocked that you have to go out here and download a third party firewall like Comodo and etc in order to feel at ease, when in all reality like Greg said Windows is working in the background protecting you the whole time. Turn on the SPI firewall in your router and download you some good anti virus, and you're set for life..
