Can't blame just Windows Firewall. Easily 75% of the people out there running firewalls probably shouldn't be. I don't know how many calls I've had over the years that went
"I just bought this firewall, and now I can't get online"
"Is the computer on now ma'am/sir?"
"Turn the firewall off"
"Is there a new icon by your clock"
"On the bottom right of your screen"
"Oh, I'll have to turn my computer on"
(Not out loud) "But you just freakin' said.... Grrrrrr"
Waiting, waiting, waiting........
"It'* on now. Yes, theres a new picture there I've never seen"
"Okay, please right click on it and find something that says diable
or turn off
or words to that effect"
(This is usually more aof a fight, but I'll condense it to)"Okay, theres a red line through it now"
"Can you get online now?"
"Yes! It works now"
"Okay got to www.whatever
or email them for specific directions on how you should set it up"
"But I thought you were tech support....."
That'* the beginning of a whole new fight, but you et my drift.....
