    ESET says the firewall is active fine, but a couple of times I've received at error message that it couldn't detect firewall configuration or something. The last time was when I added firefox to the exclusions list for from protocol filtering(was doing a speedtest). I had just run some commands(netsh nt ip, netsh winsock) and restarted my computer before I did this.

    Windows XP Professional 32bit
    Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter - WMP54g (connection to router)

    My ethernet card (Atheros PCI-E Ethernet controller) is disabled. I didn't have this problem with 4.0.437, only since I updated(new OS install, no previous antivirus) to 4.2.40. I decided to disable the ethernet card then(so already disabled before I ran the netshell commands), this wouldn't be a problem would it, if it isn't used?

    How come you are repairing winsock? What is the exact Eset error and does the reboot fix it? Disabling/enabling ethernet card shouldn't be the cause.

    Yeah it seems to be working normally now except for that message, just wanting to notify there is a possible problem. It might have duplicated the default rules in the firewall as well(i'm in interactive mode) but that's gone away now. Thanks for the help guys. :)

    I was just repairing winsock to try fix a problem I have with browsing a site on the internet, though it might help... I have an issue with at least one forum boards where it hangs for ages if not forever on loading certain links to threads/forums, yet others load asap. Maybe its just the forum's server or database..
