firewall not allowing exceptions

Posted: 02-04-2008, 04:48 AM
the built in firewall isnt allowing any connections
except for basicly internet explorer and other browsers and i for one play
allot of online games so this makes it very difficult and ive added the
programs to the exceptions list and the ports and it just seems like its
completely ignorring that exceptions list even tho theyre checked off on it
does anyone know whats going on?? ive even tried turning the firewall off
but it still blocks absolutely everything

Some things to consider:
Do you have cookies enabled?
Have you tried adding sites to the trusted zone?
Do you have more than one firewall?
