    howdy...

    I also had a question...why in the world does any firewall stop the internet from working??? why the hell would they make internet firewalls if you cant connect to the internet when they are activated? maybe im just a rookie and dont really know how to work the settings. I do, though, just use the default settings. so..if n e body could reply ...pls do so.
