And that's part of the beauty of a newsgroup. For ever person who posts,
and gets an answer, there may be hundreds, or even thousands--they've
surveyed this stuff--of people who look at the exchange and use that
information to fix their systems without ever posting themselves.

This is part of the reason that most newsgroup posters prefer not to go to
email with troubleshooting information unless there's a clear
confidentiality issue of some sort--it's better to keep it all out in the
open, where it can be "peer reviewed" and where the lurkers can learn too.

Glad it helped.

Hi,
I'm running XP Home Edition ad I tried using the
information recommended in your reply to"LJ" but in the
command prompt window, after perssing enter, it tells
me " 'netsh' is not an internal or external
command,operable program or batch file"
I've already uninstalled MS Antispyware BETA and my
firewal still won't work. Is there a way I could fix this
problem?

Thanks

Hmm - I had thought NETSH was available in XP Home.

Sorry--we probably need to revise that KB article to make this clearer.

The alternative method--the one specified for pre-sp2 XP or for Windows
2000, which has a link taking you to another article--should do the job for
you then.

Please let us know if you have trouble following that second article--it
does specifically say that it applies to XP Home, and doesn't require any
command-line tools.--

Right--sorry--that's clearly stated in the KB article, but maybe it isn't
clear to OO.

I've had one other reply in a thread which I thought had clearly specified
SP2 with that same response--which isn't what I would expect on an SP1
machine--the NETSH command is there, just the subcommands would not be--so I
wouldn't expect that response, I don't think.

Hmm--I need a whole stable of VPC's to test issues like this.
