Right click your internet connection, properties, advanced then take the tick out of Protect My Computer.

broughy, if you go to Start/connect to/show all connections, this will take you to your internet connections panel. You should now see two Icons, one for the AOL setup that you cannot gain access to and another one, [I think it's "Lan" connections, or similar].

That is the one that you need to right click on and choose properties. from there you will be able to enable or disable the firewall. j.
