Firewall protects your computer from differnt malicious threats that are hidden and try to enter your machine from back door.

And if your connection disconnects automatically, there is some virus issue, scan your full PC.

And yes you can turn that shutdown off, by typing "shutdown -a" (without quotes)

If you are behind a router firewall is allmost 0. Firewall just blocks applications to connect to internet and also blocks incomming connections.Firewall has a list with allowed applications and the otherones are blocked. So for home use you can disable it. to abort the shutdown you can use : "shutdown -a"

The anti-virus has set up a firewall which has disabled your internet access. Go into your Webroot console and go to settings and firewall and set it to make an exception for incoming network connections.

Vista keeps using the internet connection


The greedy folks at Microsoft use their WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) to monitor your microsoft products, cant be helped, they claim to only check microsoft products though this should only take a second or two for verification. Check your firewall settings and if neccessary use multiple firewalls to stop the intrusions.

Cannot connet to internet


Device communication issue! This sometimes occurs fro many reasons mainly FIREWALLS~ In order to keep this from happeninig you should probably setup a static address on your laptop or if your network has a SSID, it needs to be manually set into your adapter because it is not picking up your network. This often happens when you use your laptop in or on other networks. Easy fix, but need answers to these questions!
