    i have no idea what my firewall settings should be. :confused:

    currently, these items are allowed to pass through my firewall.

    are there other items / programs that i should have listed with these ?? :confused:

    do i need to remove any of these that are listed ?? :confused:

    i very seldom go to limewire. i do not have any norton programs on my system. i don't share my files, or printers.

    what would be the best thing for me to do with these firewall settings ??

    thanks in advance !! :D

    Do you know what the first item relates to. It may be linked to a browser add-on that you installed without realising that came bundled with software. The rest all look fine.

    Check in your browsers add-on list and see if there are any in there that you do not recognise and disable them. If they also appear in your Add/Remove programs list uninstall them as well.

    Windows Firewall only stops incoming connections, these free third party firewalls stop outgoing connections as well, giving better security Free Firewalls.
