XP's Firewall is fair but you could use the Zone Alarm Free version

I will not answer a PM if I think the question should have been asked on the forum.

Zone Alarm is an excellent utility. There are some settings that need to be made when you set it up or it can be a bit annoying, constantly requesting confirmations or suggesting that you buy the Pro model (totally unnecessary). It does not burden your available systems resources the way MCAffee, CA, and Norton do.

The result will be an exact reversal of the conditions existing before The Civil Rights Act. And the hardest hit will be the children in whose name the left always claims to act. Well done Obama". - Pendark
