Q.  How Do I Enable And Or Disable The Microsoft Windows XP Firewall?

  2. Within the Network Connections window, right click the Local Area Connection and select properties.

  3. Within the Local Area Connection Properties window, click the Advanced tab.

  4. Finally, check the Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet option.

Disabling the Windows XP firewall
