Thanks Rog for the reply I dont know how to enable the Xp firewall but I have a hardware firewall with my router. So if these arent that dangerous I will let it go. Thanks again

Also to Dwayne, U can go to www.sygate.com and download their Free Personal firewall. They are the best. And their personal one is free for Personal Use, and U can register it , and they do keep it up dated for you all for free. And it is the only one that I know of to date that has never been hacked thru. And It does keep your system in full stealth mode , and there are five different Scans that you can run. Including a check for trojans.
I highly Recommend it to anybody . Sygate is the only Firewall that I will Run in any and all of my systems !!!

One more thing too, Ive ran security checks with sygate at shields up , at Symantec, at DSL Reports, And At Sygates sight itself , And they all came up showing My system in full stealth mode, And Shields up to me that this was a well harden Machine for just Running The XP home edition. And with the zone alarm or any of the other firewalls that I have used , They left holes in my system (ports open) . But Sygate has never done so , and to this date it is the only one that I have found on record that has NEVER been hacked through. And has gotten the highest of Govt . Awards, And High awards from Pc Mag, Tech Tv, Times , and Forbes . But dont take my word for it , cruise on over there and scope out the site for yourself. I will bet you my bottom dollar that this is one of the best Pieces of Free
software that you can find. And it does so Much to for such a great price to.
