I wanted to check my system so i started a symantec security check which advised me that i was to install a personal firewall program that blocks the transmittion of personal information.I decided to download AVG Anti Virus system free adition which i thought would solve the problem.Once this was downloaded and installed i run the symantec security check just to be sure ,however the check revealed the same problem.Any ideas on how i can retify this.

is not a firewall. Try the firewalls posted in your original thread(s)
