There is a setting in Windows XP that automatically set certain parameters. There is also a way to turn it off. I am at work with this awesome Windows 95 computer of mine, so I will give you details when I get home.

It is something like...right click my computer, properties and then something about turn off automatic restore after reboot.

Does anyone know what I talking about? If not, I will update this thread when I get home.

You don't want the firewall?

On the Network Settings, right click your Internet Connection and go to Properties and Security - untick Firewall.

Then it will say you need a firewall - say that you have a Firewall and that you will check it yourself. That way it thinks you have one and it won't moan about it.
