Use ZTREE To Change The Names Of All .EXE Files In All Your HDDs.

This whole listing is great, thank you! Yet my brain is out: where is the 'inbuilt XP Firewall'? Thank you for your time!

You Can Access The WINDOWS Firewall Using 2 Entries Of The Control Panel:

A - Security Center ( Corresponding File - WSCUI.CPL ),

B - Windows Firewall ( Corresponding File - FIREWALL.CPL ).

Using The Links Available In ( A ) You Can Access ( B ).

.CPL Is The Common File Extension For All Control Panel Entries.

Cheers.

The XP Firewall is like Swiss cheese.

Use ZoneAlarm 2017 instead and yes it does still support XP
