Does anybody know if its possible to run a firewall program whilst playing FH online, i have zone alarm and somtimes it lets me play and other times it doesnt.

The last time i played online without my firewall i got the W32.Spybot.worm and a Trojan horse called Gator, and ever since then even though the worm has been fixed and so has the trojan, if i play fh online without my firewall i always get connection problems whilst actualy playing resulting in a too high ping and then get kicked by the server, even though i have a 1mb DSL broadband, but if i go on the net with and my firewall on then i can download stuuff no problem really quick,for some reason it only happens in FH whilst playing online without my firewall, CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE?? :confused:

hmmm im not so familiar with "Zone alarm" but i have used it on my old computr once so ... left click on the Z icon in the down right corner and thne Restore zone alarm console or something thne go to programs and check for BF1942 and ther should be some X and check marks click on each of thme and change it into a Green check mark then you should have given them authorization to do what ever they want to now you can go and havea free Virus scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ to see if you got rid of those Trojans ohh and sorry if my english is bad... PM me if there is something you dont understand ..
