sorry had to get that off my chest. anyway, the system tray is where the little icons are next to the clock at the bottom right in windows. if you have windows xp you might have some icons hidden in which case you would click the little arrow next to the clock to reveal the hidden icons. then follow zuffy's instructions.

The ZA Icon changes also...it has red and green bars whenever you are transmitting/receiving and a red/yellow ZA when you are idle. But it doesn't come with WinXP automatically, though it might have been included by whoever made your computer...

WinXP has built in firewall software that's built into the OS. If you're using that, you should be able to go into networking to disable it...

XP firewall is not enabled by default.

That depends on how XP is installed. During the welcome screen, going thru the activation screen and stuff, XP will detect if you have a direct internet connection. I don't remember the question exactly, but one of the choice you make will enable the firewall.
