    Hi -NiCeGuY- (is this the correct translation: 喜好人 ?) :)

    1- the UDP packets on port 1900 comes from the Windows service SSDP...
    [Simple Service Discovery Protocol] and are used by Microsoft Messenger (as far as I Know).

    You may create a specific rule for this allowing UDP to remote 1900 for Genereric Host Process (svchost). This GHP is also listening on local port 1900...
    (Why? no idea.)

    Remark: don't use 2 firewal in the same time. If you use LNS, you don't have to use the W xp (Half-)firewall ...

    2- Icmp type 3 code 1 = machine unaccessible
    Icmp type 3 code 3 = port unreachable...

    Ignore them (let LNS block theses Icmp type/code):

    The only ICMP type/code allowed over internet are normally:

    Type 8 code 0 : Echo outbound only
    Type 0 code 0 : Echo reply (to the previous "ping") inbound only
    Type 11 code 0 : Timeout (used by Trace route...) inbound only

    In a local network, on the client PCs, ICMP type 3 code 4 must be allowed in and out within the network (means "Fragmentation needed but a Don't Fragment flag is set.")

    All the other Icmp type/code have to be blocked by the firewall. Blocked and logged to help you to find some events happened in the Network.
