Eh? The XP firewall doesn't "start" - it's just there, it won't show up like ZoneAlarm does in the systray etc.

The Windows Firewall is a waste of space.
It only stops data coming in, not out. This means that any program on your computer can leak information on the Internet.

Leave the Windows Firewall off & install Zone Alarm, free on PC World CD's.
