Every time i turn on my laptop (winXP home)IE6 I have to enable win firewall,when I veiw security after enabling firewall it shows enabled, but if I turn PC off I have to go through the same procedure again.
Can anyone help?

Do you have any other security programs, eg Norton? If so it may be set to override the Win firewall.

You havent got another firewall installed have you?,also you shouldent be using the xp firewall,its as usefull as a chocolate fireguard.

If you're not using a third-party firewall, go to start menu/run, type


Press return.

Scroll down the list to `Windows Firewall/ICS`; make sure it is set to Automatic.
