Vista displayed a message :

Windows firewall is blocking incoming connections for iexplorer.exe.

I'm already behind a hardware firewall, and no malware is on the new laptop.

What does this message mean?

I read it was just an alert, and as I knew iexplorer, I stopped blocking them.

Sometimes the Windows firewall can appear to be overzealous and clearly blocking your browser is just such a case in point.

iexplorer.exe can also be adware click here so runnind a program like AdAware or Spybot Search and Destroy should pick it up for removal.
