    What type of firewall do you have? Hardware/Software? Which one?

    Is there an icon for it in your toolbar (bottom right of the screen) ?

    Try going Control Alt Delete and see what you have running ie Norton, Zone Alarm, etc ...

    Anything you're not sure of just post the details in this thread ...

    Are you sure it is your firewall causing the slow down? If it is the firewall for some reason, I don't know of methods of "tweaking" them except to turn them off. {NOT A GOOD IDEA}

    What kind of internet connection are you using?
