The policies depend on whether the computer is part of a network and/or domain or not, but it is not something that you should have to deal with on a Windows reinstallation even if it is connected to a home network.

Did you do a format and a fresh installation or did you do a repair install which retains all the settings the previous installation had?

What firewall are you using?

Are you using XP Home or XP Pro?

What specific problems are you having?
