I just bought a A8N-SLI Premium based system and got it home tonight and started downloading all the latest drivers and other updates.

Eventually I installed the 6.66 nForce drivers and enabled the firewall. Then I couldn't really download stuff anymore. Using Mozilla 1.06 I tried to download other stuff and it would appear to download the file, but the self extracting exe woulf fail when it verified itself!

When I switched to the standard windows firewall I was able to download again so I grabbed the 7.12 beta drivers and tried again. Same problem!

Are others using the nvidia firewall successfully?

I use it with the 64bit windows just fine, but I use outpost firewall which has an ad filter and more features under regular 32bit windows.

Nvidia's firewall is known to have issues with P2P software. Your better off with a software firewall, the one built into windows is just fine.
