Do firewalls run on WinXP if logged off?

  Mattski 18:40 08 Nov 03

I've got Norton Personal Firewall running on Windows XP Pro, on an always on broadband connection with a fixed IP address. If no one is logged in to the machine, is the Firewall still running and providing protection?

Thanks for any help on this!

Thanks for the info - I use remote desktop to get to the machine from home. When I log out, no one's logged in, but the machine has to stay on so I can reach it again.
