Hello, I have earthlink dial-up and I windows xp- with SP2! Anyway I was wanting to set up a firewall through windows and when I hit setting, I get this message "Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings." Can someone please help me? I got one of those new W32 worm type virus the other nite and found out that it can be used to allow someone to take over my computer! I also read that besides having a up to date virus protector, I also need to put up a firewall to prevent intruders! So now Im really scared, because this happen with the firewall in windows! I ran all the clean up for the virus "twice" and ran a full virus check on my computer and everything is clear now! But I still get that message when tring to set up a firewall! Is this normal or is there some other way to setup a windows firewall or does this mean I already have a firewall up?
