First of all, I want to thank you guys for all the help!!
I have read many times in the forums that the XP firewall lacks a lot. I purchased "PC-Cillin Internet Security 2006", which I run in "real time"...and tried to run that firewall, but every time I turn XP firewall off and PC on...I get the "this page cannot be displayed" message. My browser won't open anything.
I have looked thru just about everything I can imagine, I have tried using the "exception list" for sites, but can't even pull up msn, or hotmail.
I am uncomfortable just running XP Firewall....is PC-Cillin any good?
Oh, I also have..
Spybot S&D (w/ tea-timer running)
Ad-aware SE Personal
And use regularly..
