LOL - Nonsense, yea, that explains why AOL and Yahoo IM and many
others can punch holes while installing in the XP firewall, but, they
have to get permission to do it in ZAP.

So, VB, are you stating that NO APPLICATION or MALWARE can make
adjustments to the Windows XP SP2 firewall when the user is running as
an administrator without the admin knowing?

And once again Leythos spectacularly fails to understand that a) noone
ever claimed that, and b) an administrator cannot be prevented from
doing whatever he pleases without restricting his privileges (which
actually makes him a non-administrator).
