i would assume that in the infinite computer wisdom of childhood....that they couldn't play the game with the firewall on....so they turned it off...i would ask thim if this is the case...and if it is...request that they turn it back on when they are done

BitBurger, are you sure your Router doesn't have a firewall on it, if not there is no point having a firewall on your PC and your Router. If you are using a branded firewall try turning it off and using the Windows firewall for a while.
