If you're using Vista/7, right click and go to Run as Administrator.

I'm gonna try that but I heard that uninstalling gamespy would do it.
I need more information or more fixes because I'm getting very mad at this

Add Halo CE to your firewall exception list.
Uninstall gamespy from your computer.
Make sure your firewall is NOT set to block all incoming connections.
Add ports 80, 2302 and 2303 (the latter two depending on your Halo CE network settings) to your router's port exclusion list.
And you do not need to run as administrator for such minor issues.

Do all of these and come back to tell us if they worked.

Make it an offer it can't refuse.
