Check your firewall and antivirus settings make sure woozworl getting allowed.
If your computer is connected to a network or the Internet, it is advisable to use computer security tools, such as a firewall, to protect your computer from unauthorized access or viruses.
Windows operating systems come with a built-in firewall, malware protection and Internet security.
These settings are automatically configured to the factory's default settings when you purchase the operating system.
To alter the settings for these security features, access the Windows Security utility through your system's Control Panel.

Open the "Windows Security" utility by opening your "Start" menu and selecting the "Control Panel" option on the right-hand side.
Windows XP users can click on the "Security Center" link in this window.
For Vista users, click on the "Security" option, and then click on "Windows Security Center."
Click on the "Windows Firewall" option to change the settings for your firewall, if you are using XP.
You can turn the firewall on or off, and also configure which programs are allowed through the firewall.
Vista users should click on the "Windows Firewall" link in the left window pane and click on the "Change settings" link. In this window, you can block programs from passing through your firewall and grant access to new programs.
Click the "Internet Options" selection to configure your Internet security settings.
You can raise or lower the security level for different zones using preset configurations, or you can create a custom security level.
You can also reset the Internet security level to its default settings.
Click on "Automatic Updating" in the Windows Security Center to configure your system's update settings.
In Vista operating systems, click on "Windows Update" and "Change Settings."
You can configure your update settings to automatically check for updates daily or weekly.
You can also set a convenient time for your system to update to prevent interruption.
Automatic updating can be turned off by selecting the corresponding option toward the bottom of the window.
Select the "Malware Protection" option to edit malware settings if you are using Vista.
This option is not available in XP's version of Windows Security Center.
You can turn the malware protection programs on or off using the arrow to the right of the "Malware Protection" bar.
Click the "X" button to exit Windows Security Settings.

Xbox set up


If you have an Xbox 360 connected to a home network that also has a Windows Media Center, you can add your Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender device so that you can enjoy the digital media on your Windows Media Center computer by using Xbox 360. For more information, see Xbox 360 online.
1. Turn on your Windows Media Center computer and log on to Windows. Verify that your computer is connected to your home network.
2. Turn on your Xbox 360 and verify that it is connected to your home network.
3. In Windows Media Center, on the start screen, scroll to Tasks, and then click add extender.
4. On the Welcome to Windows Media Center Extender Setup screen in Windows Media Center, click Next.
5. Press the Green Start button blank.gif on your Xbox 360 remote control or use your Xbox 360 controller to select the media blade.
6. On your Xbox 360, select Media Center.
7. On your Xbox 360, follow the instructions on the screen to obtain an 8-digit Windows Media Center Setup Key. Write down this 8-digit setup key. This is the key that you will use to affiliate your Xbox 360 with your computer that has Windows Media Center.
You do not need to download any additional software because the Extender functionality is built into Windows Media Center.
8. On the Enter the Setup Key screen in Windows Media Center, use the Windows Media Center remote control or keyboard to enter the 8-digit setup key that displays on Xbox 360, and then click Next.
9. Follow the steps in Extender Setup.
Several changes are automatically made to your Windows Media Center computer during the Extender Setup, including changes to the Windows Firewall settings. For more information about Windows Firewall, see Windows Firewall: recommended links. During this time, the Windows Media Center Extender service (which is named mcx2svc) starts on your computer, along with other dependent services.
If you have a firewall running on your computer that is not the Windows Firewall, make sure that the firewall software is set up to allow Xbox 360 to connect to your Windows Media Center computer as a Windows Media Center Extender. Some firewalls are already set up to allow Xbox 360 to connect to a Windows Media Center computer as a Media Center Extender. However, other firewalls will require you to make changes to how the firewall software is set up. For more information about which firewalls are already set up to allow a Media Center Extender connection, as well as information about how to set up other firewalls to work with a Windows Media Center Extender such as Xbox 360, go to the Firewalls and Media Center Extender article on the Microsoft website.
10. After Extender Setup has finished, in Windows Media Center, click Finish.
On the TV that is connected to Xbox 360, the Windows Media Center user interface appears. You can then enjoy live TV, recorded TV, pictures, music, videos, and other digital media on your Xbox 360 as you would in Windows Media Center. A new user account named mcx1 (by default) is automatically created to use the Extender.

Please see http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/8076aff3-16ec-4751-9f57-d36e0ff407201033.mspx#EPD for more info.

Thanks and hope that helps!

How to Check Windows 7 Firewall Settings

1. Click on the start button, and then click on Control Panel

2. Once in Control Panel click on Windows Firewall. Here you will see the main firewall settings.

Note with the newer versions of Windows, this includes Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 you now leave the service running. If you want to turn off the firewall you just click on the "Turn Windows Firewall on or off" option.

In addition if something networking related is not working properly it may me a good idea to turn off the Windows Firewall for testing to see if the Windows Firewall is actually causing your problem.

3. If you are planning to leave the Windows Firewall running it is a good idea to check your "Advanced settings"

Once in here you will be able to check your incoming and outgoing rules, as well as your connection rules.

Note if you still have trouble after setting the "Advance settings" there could be another firewall on a computer or on the network in general blocking the communication. If you are communicating from computer to computer in most cases your need to make sure the same firewall changes are on both computers.

Why is my dell dimension 3000 with xp keeps getting file download- security warning for everything I try to open? Even opening the internet icon on my computer


I see XP, sorry ok here's your fix...
Because a firewall restricts communication between your computer and the Internet, you might need to adjust settings for some programs that prefer an open connection. These adjustments are called "exceptions." To learn more about exceptions, see the Using the Exceptions Tab section of this article.
Windows Firewall now has three settings: On, On with no exceptions, and Off.
On: Windows Firewall is turned on by default, and normally you should leave it that way. When you choose this setting, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, except for requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab.
On with no exceptions: When you select the Don't allow exceptions check box, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, including requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab. Use this setting when you need maximum protection for your computer, such as when you connect to a public network in a hotel or airport, or when a dangerous virus or worm is spreading over the Internet.
Tip There is no need to keep Don't allow exceptions selected all the time, because when it is, some of your programs might not work correctly, and the following services are blocked from accepting unsolicited requests:
• File and Printer Sharing
• Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop
• Discovery of network devices
• Preconfigured programs and services on the exceptions list
• Additional items that you've added to the exceptions list

Note When you select Don't allow exceptions, you can still send and receive e-mail, use an instant messaging program, or view most Web pages.
Off: This setting turns Windows Firewall off. When you choose this setting, your computer is much more vulnerable to harm from unknown intruders or viruses from the Internet. This setting should only be used by advanced users for computer administration purposes, or if your computer is protected by another firewall.
To adjust Windows Firewall settings
1.
Click Start and then click Control Panel.
2.
In the control panel, click Windows Security Center.
3.
Click Windows Firewall.
4.
In the General Tab make your selection.

sp2_wfset1.jpg

Windows Firewall General tab
Note Settings that you create when your computer is joined to a domain are stored separately from those created when your computer is not joined to a domain. These separate groups of settings are called profiles.

If the above does not work you may also need to adjust your internet security settings. You can do this by the following:
Open up your internet explorer
click on tools
select internet options
click on the security tab
change the sttings to medium, rather than what they are. Click apply and ok. Exit your browser and restart it to try to connect again. Let me know if the above options do not work and we will try the next step. Hope this helps!

My software for singer futura machine does not install on either computer how can I fix the problem


The problem could be the operating software (Windows XP, Vista, 7), but it sounds most likely like a firewall problem. If you have a firewall program installed like the one that automatically comes on Windows 7, it doesn't allow much to be installed unless you tell it to allow it. Also, Windows 7 needs a patch to allow the Futura software to install and run (available at www.Futura-support.com). Download the patch. When you go to run it, be sure you're off the internet (right click on Windows Explorer icon that appears in the lower left corner of your screen and choose Close Window). Now left click on the Start icon in the lower left corner. Choose "Systems and Security" in the right column, then "Windows Firewall". On the lefthand side will be the second choice of "Turn Windows Firewall On or Off." You're only going to turn the Firewall off long enough to install the Patch and, YES IT IS SAFE! Once you've installed the patch, go immediately back in and turn your firewall back on.

If you use another firewall program (i.e., Norton, McAfee, Computer Associates), you'll have to refer to their Help on how to allow this to install, though their programs will probably ask if you want to install this software rather than just block it. Unless you set Windows 7 firewall to ask you, it just blocks everything.

I hope this is your problem.
