    I have Windows XP SP 2. with Windows Firewall. I was looking at the Firewall
    settings,, saw the list of exceptions to the firewall protection, and
    noticed that Internet Explorer was NOT check as an exception. I'm not
    computer savvy, but want to know if that is the correct setting, ie, IE not
    an exception.
    If you feel I should be asking this on a Microsift site. could you give me a
    url and also which Microsoft Newsgroup would be most helpful to me? Thanks
    so much

    So what's in the Exceptions list other than programs that have something to
    do with networking or Remote Desktop applications that must have an
    Exception rule for a FW in order for the program to communicate?

    IE is a client program running on the machine meaning its the one that must
    initiate the contact with a Website or Web server before the FW will allow
    inbound traffic from the site back to the machine for IE. That's called a
    *solicitation* for traffic from a site, otherwise, the traffic is blocked by
    the FW.

    There is no need to make an Exception rule for that kind of program or a
    client program.

    Thank you for taking the time to explain that to me-as I said, I don't know
    too much, have just been browsing through programs and such, trying to teach
    myself, so i appreciate your reply

    You're welcomed.

    Here are a couple of links that will give you further insight into FW(s),
    which I don't consider something like XP's FW or any other personal FW
    solution to be FW(s), but rather they are host based packet filters running
    at the machine level to protect a machine/OS and the applications running on
    them.

    Once again, thanks so much--learned a lot today. Little by little, I'll
    hopefully get to where I know how and what to ask and won't be so intimated
    by the big bad computer!!
    Take care

    I'll provide you with a couple of other links. The buck stops with the O/S
    and you should try to harden it to attack for a computer that has a direct
    connection to the Internet (no router) between the modem and the computer.

    You should secure the O/S or harden it to attack as much as possible by
    shutting down services like MS File and Print Sharing, along with other
    things. You should remove F&PS off the NIC (Network Interface Card) as the
    machine should not be sharing resources on the Internet with a direct
    connection, even though you have a PFW protecting it. It's just an in case
    kind of thing.

    http://labmice.techtarget.com/articles/winxpsecuritychecklist.htm

    The list of services you may or may not want to shutdown.

    I see that addition as plain as day -- *you* do see it.

    I click a radio button and type three words; you reply with well over ten
    times that amount, mostly in gibberish. Yes, DUHuane, "it's just
    confirmation as to who has control of who."

    Oh, you're going statical now are you?

    I am pure trash taking about you that's my game that's all it ever was,
    which you couldn't, you can't, and you didn't come back with anything
    other than your *clucking* trash.

    I don't give a **** about some numbers. And that you even have to go to
    a count tells me how absolutely sad you are about.

    And what keeps you around trying to hunt me down is your addiction to
    try to out gun me and you'll never do it.

    You have tried every last one of your troll moves from some article
    where you followed in foot steps. You're a recipe Troll.

    You're not even an original. You're cut right out of the cookie cutter.
    You're a cookie cut Troll.

    I am playing pure trash game and have been doing it all along. You put
    yourself in front of me. I didn't put you there.


    It looks like a whine to me.
