Hi I trying to help a friends,
She has XP home, uses PC Tools firewall and free AVG, ADaware SE and XP is up to date.
The problem being the firewall keeps getting set to unabled.
I have run all the A/Virus and adaware softeware but I can't find any problem.
When this happens she can't access the web..

Any idea?

Go along with johnnyrocker,But after you uninstall it Run C Cleaner then re-install it.Or download and run Kerio Firewall.you get the full version for a month then it reverts to the free version.It runs itself with no pop-ups asking you to allow or deny programs.

I did unistall/reinstall her firewall, but this didn't resolve the problem.
With Kerio Firewall which site is best to download, as they all seem you have to pay?

Or this one.click here Now if you uninstalled her Firewall and ran C Cleaner.And she still had problems.I am not sure that Downloading another Firewall will help.Has she up-dated her security programs and ran them.
