    Firewall
    If you want to turn off the firewall for your computer: Highly recommended.

    Click Start
    Click Settings
    Click Network Connections
    Right click network connection you want to change
    Select Properties
    Click the Advanced tab
    Uncheck Internet Connection Firewall

    Ok I looked at that site and thought Hmmmmm !!
    Whyare they recommending your Firewall be turned off.

    Having your Firewall on has always been recommended..

    Any thought on this ???

    I would say without reading the page that they aren't suggesting to disable it, but rather HOW to do it if you wished to.

    On second thought, I did read it and all I can think of is that you have two firewalls like I do and you could disable one which I did.

    Ok thats fair. I will accept that as some 3rd party Firewalls can cause problems for those that set their security settings to high.
