    You should not use the internet without an active firewall.

    However you should also not have two (software) firewalls running on the same machine. If you use XP and another firewall then switch the XP one off.

    If you are having a problem running a program that requires access to the internet, then just tell the firewall that this is allowed.

    You don't want to find out , just make sure you are running one other than the built in XP one. Zone Alarm, Sygate, something.
