      Nope disable it by:

      Start, control panel, security centre, then firewall, turn it off

      Also whilst your on the line - is zonealarm fairly user friendly?In other words does it keep coming up with alert boxes all the time?Cheers m8.
      Yes it is constantly reminding you when something tries to leave to the outside world.

      I use Kerio, which is about a tenner and you can get from sunbeltsoftware.com i think.

      Look round on their site though as there is a voucher for $5 off before you buy it

      Kerio is brilliant. I actually prefer the old version which is free.
