Thread: Xp Firewall

  1. #1
    I fired up my internet for the first time with xp. and started downloading.
    What the hell? my speed is down to a trickle
    So I figured: "maybe its xp's firewall" Disable xp's firewall and BOOM, back up to normal B)
    (This is the only thing I can account for the problem)
    I'm going to install zone alarm becuase I had no problem with it in the past

    Another thing you might want to try is going into your network connection properties and disabling (or uninstalling) the "QOS Packet Scheduler." It tends to have a limiting effect on your bandwidth.

    Anyway . . .

    It's a wise decision to use 3rd party software for a firewall. The XP version only blocks incoming traffic anyways. It won't detect a trojan.

    ZoneAlarm is a good choice.
