erm reconfigure your firewall? Im not sure why your games cant connect , a firewall is there to hide all your ports thats one of their main functions , im assuming commodo is blocking them so you can either relax the firewall rules or set custom rules for your games ,

its a firewall mate its supposed to steath your ports , but im assuming you have reinstalled windows and not commodo so no your ports are not hidden forever your problem lies elsewhere , what exactly is your issue when trying to connect to an online game?

are all online games affected (im not sure what windows live is)?

edit scrub that i know what it is now.............so you cant connect to the service at all?

Did you re-install Commodo too? It's a tough application to get entirely rid of.

Hello,

To be honest i don't see any point in using third party Firewall application when you have a pretty good native one. Just use Windows Firewall and Windows 7 Firewall control Windows 7 Firewall Control : Sphinx Software for easier interface just use the Free edition. Check this document Programs : Windows 7 Firewall Control : Sphinx Software
