go to control panel and double click Windows Firewall. make sure that it is turned on. if it says you cant turn it on, then get a free firewall

I have had this problem as well even when I knew the firewall was turned on....(I would check to make sure by double clicking on the shield in the taskbar and I would see that it was on)

 

Im not sure what is causing this problem but like Mangix said check to see if its on or not(you can also check by double clicking on the red shield in the taskbar)

(also like Mangix said you can download a free firewall if you would like..."better to be safe than sorry i guess")

the firewall that comes with Service Pack 2 can be easily disabled by malware

Yah Microsoft should improve their firewall to prevent any tweaking to it by spyware or malware.

 

 

 

Indeed they should. If something tries to tamper with ZoneAlarm it warns the user.

hi,Mangix

i know it's not got any malware in my system as i posted a hjt yesterday which came back clean.

not a real problem as such just curious as to why it happens although today it didn't do it !!

normally this happens just before your antivirus kicks in or it needs updating.
