How to Configure the Windows XP Firewall

Windows Firewall is a software component of Microsoft Windows that provides fire walling and packet filtering functions. The main purpose of a firewall is to separate a secure area from a less secure area and to control communications between the two. Windows XP includes a firewall that gives protection against internet attackers by blocking malicious software (malware) from being loaded on your PC. Firewalls can be configured to block certain websites while allowing harmless websites and transmissions to come through. You can change the settings of the firewall to block additional programs or allow access for certain programs. The best way to fix this problem is to contact Windows XP Technical Support offered by Computer repair companies which are truly an outstanding solution for troubleshooting any and all types of Windows XP problem.

Steps to Configure the Windows XP Firewall

 •    Customize which programs are allowed through your firewall by clicking on the "Windows Firewall" option under the "Virus Protection" section. Click on the "Exceptions" tab and place check marks next to each program you wish to allow through the firewall. Click on the "Add Program" button to locate programs that are not shown in the list.
