Greetings:

I use the HomeEdition XP 5.1 verison. When I check to see if my Firewall is enabled, I can't because it is grayed out. There is not a check in the box saying it is enabled.

Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreicated.

Could this have anything to do with the fact I use Cablevision Optonline.net?


Thanks

Don't bother, it isn't worth it. Download Zone alarm and get some real protection as the Xp unit is rather worthless..

I agree with Motherboard...go for ZoneAlarm and get full protection, not just incoming traffic. (y)
