Firewall won't enable

  Keyhole 20:25 28 Mar 2004

I am unable to enable the Windows (XP Home Edition) firewall for my broadband connection - it generates a message saying "Cannot enable shared access. Error 1003: Cannot complete this function".
Although I am running updated Norton AV and VCatch, I am worried my PC could be unprotected.

Is the PC on a network?

Download something like the free edition of Zonealarm click here it's much better than XP's anyway.

VoG - my PC is home computer, and is not on a network.
mikef - will Zonealarm override the XP firewall?

Yes, ZoneAlarm will override the XP firewall.
