[access-uk] Re: Windows firewall message

Hi, don't block explorer.exe! This is in fact used for Internet Explorer and the Windows shell. So I think you've done the right thing. Hope that helps.

Hi all -

In addition to everything else: When I had the laptop wired in to my router, and was able to connect to the internet, the first time I went to a website, the Windows firewall popped up with a message saying it had blocked explorer.exe, and if I unblocked it, then broadcasts could be received. I unblocked it. Is this the right thing to do, or should Explorer.exe stay blocked by the firewall?

Thanks -

Andy
