I was there for 15 minutes and it disconnected me.
Hi Cheryl, I have Windows 7 so to turn if off I press the start button--->Control Panel--->System Security--->Windows Firewall. To turn it back on, I do the same thing once chats are over.
It may or may not help but might be at least something to try. :)

ACTUALLY Karen, I think I may have more than one on.
I'm sitting right there with you not knowing how to turn off the firewalls.
It was just me, and I decided not to sit here waiting for the whole time, so I guess it is 'ok'.
Don't think that I was there.
