Windows Firewall

I am not sure if it is a problem but on startup, some programmes e.g. skype, connect online then i get a brief warning that windows firewall is not running (it is enabled)this quickly disappears and everything seems fine. Should the firewall switch on before any programmes try to access the internet.

Hi, best not to rely on Windows Firewall, I advise you to get a Free Firewall like Zone Alarm, Comodo or Sunbelt Pers Firewall instead. Personally I liked the Free Sunbelt Pers Firewall so much that I bought the full version - just set it and forget it!

PS - I also use Skype, with no firewall warnings!
