hey guys, i was just searching for an answer to a firewall question. i am connected over a LAN at school. i d/l a copy of Tiny Personal Firewall with WinME. i upgraded to XP about 4 months ago. i noticed that after every 20 hours (or so) i would have to reboot because i could not connect to the internet anymore (IM services, IE etc.) anyways, i had the firewall on the "alert me" setting, not blocking all incoming stuff. i could not fgure out what was wrong, my LAN status said i was still connected. i rebooted my computer just yesterday and turned off and deleted Tiny. no problems, been connected for over 24 hours. wha? thoughts? p.s. trying zonealarm now.
