I'm a newbie on computers so I've read all this with interest. Here's my problem.
Every time I open the Stealth Ports Wizard, it shows the first option selected (the one which says hide my computer from everyone except the following trusted networks etc). So I click on 'Stealth all Ports' instead. At first it seems to work - I hear a ping, get the little message box saying 'Your firewall has been confiurgured' etc. So I click 'Finish'. But if I re-open the Wizard I find the first option 'ticked' as before.
Sorry to be stupid, but why is this happening? I have one home PC not connected to any intranets or any other computers and a broadband modem. Why won't it accept 'Stealth All Ports'?
It's probably something simple, please can anyone suggest something?
