    Hi,
    A friend of mine just purshased a new machine with XP Home edition on it. He wants me to install NPF. I know i must shut off XP firewall, but i dont remember how to do it. Neither does he. Please give me the step by step directions. I know its not complicated and ive done it once before. However it has been awhile and i dont remember!
    Thank you in advance.

    Im also going to install NSW at the same time.
    Thanks again.

    It's here:

    Control Panel > Network Connections > right-click your network connection item > Properties > Advanced tab > untick the "Protect my computer..." box (see image)

    If you have more than one network connectoid, do this for all of them.
