NTL and a firewall ?

hi...my son has just got ntl :-( anyway, does it have a built in firewall? he has win98, we have tried again and again to put the programme in "ares" , all goes in ok, but when we click on it we get the "illegal operation" box come up, i ran "sfc" and that was ok.. any ideas, if it is not being stopped by a firewall..

Sorry, but you haven't explained this problem very well. Is it NTL dialup or NTL broadband? I have NTL Broadband and no, there is no firewall included. You say you have "tried again and again to put the programme in "ares", what is "ares"?

I use the firewall "Outpost" as reccommended by the FE. and I have no problems. I did try Zonealarm but it caused a lot of problems so I took it off.

sorry, yes i worded it all wrong, he is on broadband, Ares is a file sharing prog, it downloads ok and installs ok, but click on it and you get the illegal operation thingy. so i thought it might have some firewall somewhere, we are now clutching straws...

See that its one of the P2P downloading websites.
Perhaps NTL have blocked it on their servers due to possible piracy conflicts.
