My friend is trying to configure access to the internet via his network card and a Belkin router. His computer is running XP Home with SP2 and he is using Zone Alarm as his firewall. Every time he tries to connect to his router or the internet he finds that the Windows firewall has turned itself back on and the following message appears on his LAN connection and the 1394 Firewire

1394 Connection
Disabled Firewalled
1394 Net Adapter

Local Area connection
Network Cable Unplugged Fire……
Via Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter…Red cross

He tries to connect using the network setup wizard but this also reports
An error has occurred during configuration of Network on this computer

In the set up for the LAN he has selected the correct network card and his TCP and DNS are set for auto.

I know how to disable the windows firewall in services but is there any way of uninstalling the XP firewall altogether or is there some other solution to this problem?

Get rid of Zone Alarm. It is one of the utter most useless program. Not only does it kill your system performance, but it has a lot of issues with networks. My father in law uses it, and time to time, he cant print, get on the net, send files to other computers, or access the router. Ditch Zone alarm, stick with windows firewall, download yahoo toolbar with antispy and the Windows Defender (both are FREE), and you should be good.
