I am running XP PRO for about 2 days now every time I shut down I loose my B/B connection it says I am behind a firewall the only way I have found is to use system restore bit that is becoming a pain having to do this every time I have to shut down or even restart.
I try clicking on the internet icon and all it does is come up with cannot find server and nothing works untill I do a restore. I am with NTL I use AVG and the only firewall that I use is the XP one. I have been using B/B for about 18 months.
Huggyg71 I was thinking along the same lines as you all along I have found the problem now that I have dissabled XP's firewall I can now restart without any problems, but I can't understand why it has only just started doing it now when I have had XP for 6 months and have always had the firewall enabled without prob untill now.
