I need to grant access to the internet

  jammin 18:15 16 May 2005

I tried downloading a file. A help message told me that Windows was requesting internet access. I accidentally selected "block all access" rather than "grant access" but now I need to change this setting and allow access. So where can I alter this setting?

Are you using the XP firewall? You haven't mentioned it. If you are you need to untick a few boxes, this site shows you were they are located: click here

It's the advanced settings window you are looking for, and you want to tick the boxes you want to allow access, not untick as I said, sorry, brain not in gear.
