XP SAFETY FINE TUNING SETTINGS.

A - Inbuilt XP Firewall.
Check **ALL** Tabs - Do Not Allow Any Exceptions, Whatsoever.
Check It Again Whenever You Update Any Browser.
CHROME And FIREFOX Will Stab You In The Back.

---

B1 - MSCONFIG.
Some Programs Allow You To Check And Delete Entries.

B2 - Scheduled Tasks.
You Can Delete Entries Yourself.
Check It Again Whenever You Update Any Browser.

After A Brand New XP Installation, Wait 5 Minutes.
Sort The TASKMGR Programs Alphabetically.
Take A Picture With All The Legal Programs Running - It Will Be A Good Future Reference.

E2 - Program Names.
Start In Safe Mode As An Administrator.
Use ZTREE To Change The Names Of All .EXE Files In All Your HDDs.
Create A Lowercase / Uppercase Signature, So If Some Rogue .EXE Program Is Running, It Will Be Easily Spot With TASKMGR.

Repeat ( E2 ) Whenever Any Software Is Updated.

Cheers.

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

Post subject:  WINDOWS FIREWALL.

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
