Not used a firewall before!! Do I have to do anything or should it all work automatically (it does come up sometimes asking me whether I want to block or access eg every time I start up AOL.

Just wanting to double check.

Thanks

what, and what not to do. Usually there's a tick box stating do not ask this question again ie with AOL just tick that, and it won't ask again.

after unblocking lol

after installing a firewall every program you open it will ask if you want it to access the internet act as a server an so on.read the help files and will explain more.as above though if your sure that the program can have access then tick do not ask again or similar and it wont.
