Firewall exclusions - P2P Networking

  romford 18:11 12 Dec 2005

My XP Firewall has P2P Networking as an exclusion. I'm assuming this enables P2P for file sharing only, which I don't do nor want. Would it be safe to delete it or would its deletion interfere with other genuine programmes,please?

Im not sure of the answer to your question but I would recommend downloading a freeware firewall such as zonealarm and installing that as windows firewall although better than nothing only offers protection one way. It wont protect you against any malious apps that have got on your system and try to call home
