if your using internet explorer try setting your inet. security setting to high as varum suggested, and i would suggest something such as hackerproof98 (http://www.hackerproof98.com/) or wingate (http://www.wingate.net/)

Commented:
Set your security to high and answer no to all unsafe controls or scripts. I would check out wingate. 1 user demo. this is what I used until I setup NT with the proxy server and used it as the firewall. Good luck. By the way make sure that you turn off file and printer sharing if you going on the net this will provide a little bit more security.
