Thanks a lot!
fixed my problem! I followed your reset procedure to realize that all
those years I had my main computer connected to the Router port #3 . . .
Windows Firewall never bothered . . .
but AZ did . . . :manhappy: I simply reconnected my desktop to port #1 and voila! Sorry to have you go through all that just because of me overlooking such a simple step . . . but thanks you for every bit of advise, I've learned a lot!
