Check that your xp firewall is on. It is usually turned off by default.

Control panel - double click network connections.

This shows one or more dial up or broadband connections.

Right click the one you want to protect and select properties.

Click the advanced tab - at the top is the internet connection firewall. Tick the box to turn it on.

This is only for that connection - if more than one, repeat.

Is it working? Log hack attacks....

Click settings and security logging - then tick
Log dropped packets - Attacks are then written to the plain text file... c:\windows\pfirewall.log. Can be loaded into notepad.

Best to install McAfee or such like.

Hope this may help someone.

Regards steve.

Dear Steve (or anyone who can help)
On the third step (right click the one you want and select properties), when I do that the menu disappears. Also, in the Network Connections window it shows America Online- TYPE;Dial-Up it says STATUS;Disconnected though I'm obviously still online. What's up? Thanks.
