    You can go here https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2, to check if you have a firewall and how well it is working.
    If you don't know wether or not you have one it is most likley that you don't. It might be a good idea to read the pinned topic on firewalls and anti-virus.

    I use xp,i looked in- internet options-connection. And it says nothing about a firewall? I cant find anything about a firewall? Could someone please tell me the proper way to find out.

    Click the start menu button at the bottom left of your desktop,then enter control panel>network connections and right click your connection >properties>advanced tab far right.

    OR right click the connection icon in the system tray(bottom right desktop) then status>properties>advance tab far right

    A firewall prob shouldnt really decrease your speed anyway mate,if anything it'll block your connection full stop.If u cant solve the prob just give a different bt client like experimental or the official 3.2.1 a go.

    So as i have my xp firewall disabled,is my computer at risk? I mean,is it important for me to get a firewall? I have norton a/v 2003 for virus scans etc,but i have no firewall.
