You should never directly connect a Windows station to a live Internet connection (ie don't plug it directly into the DSL/cable modem).

Go to your nearest electronics store, spend $30, and get a home dsl/cable router (or wireless router). Use that to manage the Internet connection.

Then you can disable the Windows Firewall (it causes more problems then it tries to solve).
