What you mean "MacBook Firewall"? The notebook doesn't have (hardware) firewall. The firewall you are refering to is the one build into Mac OS X. Knowing that, do you think Botcamp, being independent from Mac OS X, can benefit from it? Of course not.

Ditto.

Bootcamp <> Mac OS X.

When you run Winblows under Bootcamp in a Mac, you enjoy all the benefits Winblows brings and none of the short-comings of Mac OS X. The MacBook operates as if it's a Dell notebook.

i have a question.

tried to do software update for my mom's MB, the previous update was done quite long ago so it came out with 14 updates. started the update, and it got stuck with the installing progress bar at 6%. waited for abt 30mins, still stuck, force shut down it.
tried it another time, choosing just 2 updates. tot 14 was too much to do at a time. went to do my own stuff, forgot abt it, and when i came back a few hours later, it was still stuck.

i didn't do anything to the MB during the update, AC cord was plugged in all the time.

i think i should try it again? repair disk permissions??

maybe you should manually download the update from the apple website and install it

and yes, repair disk permissions before installing the update.

Is there enough free disk space?

Anyways, download Onyx (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/11582 -- pick the correct version for your OS) and under the "Automation" tab, select every options except for Rebuilding LaunchServices & Display of folder content, and hit Execute. That should clean up your Mac.
