You're welcome, Koll
Don't really know, but you should use another firewall besides Windows firewall.
It's considered to be 1/2 a firewall, as it only scans traffic in one direction (incoming).
A good firewall will scan both incoming and outgoing traffic.
There are several freeware firewalls that do a better job.
You can find some of them here, under the Firewalls
heading:Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps
Just have one firewall running at a time.
Using more than one will cause conflicts.
You might also want to add your secure sites to the Trusted Site Zone in Internet Explorer, if it's sites you trust.
The security setting aren't as strict.
To add a site to the Trusted Sites Zone:
Open Internet Explorer
At the top click Tools
Select Internet Options
Click the Security
Click the Trusted sites
Click the Sites...
Where it says Add this Web site to the zone:
, type in the URL of the site you want to add.
Click the Add
button (do this for all the sites you want to add)
Click the OK
