Is it necessary to instal a firewall on a client computer on a wireless network? I access the internet through my son's computer which has Norton firewall. Do I need it on mine as well and will XP's own firewall do the job? I've read earlier threads on activating XP's firewall but cannot locate anything called 'network tasks' in network connections.
I've been running VHS video clips copied onto my home computer and then transferred to my laptop in school. The film is very jerky, though the audio file is fine. I've noticed that the processor (celeron 1133mhz) is working at over 90% capacity while the video is running. Is the processor too slow or is there insufficient RAM (256 SDRAM)? How fast would the processor need to be to ensure smooth running pictures? I've tried ringing DELL but they say it's a software issue and aren't interested.
