    Have you tried to disable the personal firewall in XP. It is not good and alters more settings than a Trend or NAV firewall. This way you can get rid of the "Internet Gateway" between your computer and the internet.

    Re: turn off Windows XP Internet Gateway

    By default, the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client is installed on a Windows XP Professional computer. The Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client starts the Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) Discovery service, that listens on port 1900 for NOTIFY directives. NOTIFY directives are messages that advertise the availability of UPnP-capable devices on the network. If you do not require the functionality of the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client, you can remove the client from your computer. Doing so can help lower the risk of Internet-based attacks to port 1900 on your computer.

    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Add/Remove Windows Components.
    2. In the Components list, click Networking Services, click Details, and then click to clear the Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control Client check box.
    3. Click OK, click Next, and then click Finish.
    4. Restart your computer.
