    Firewalls

    Dear Loungers who use Norton Anti-virus with the Firewall activated:

    Do you keep the Windows Firewall also activated or do you think it causes an unnecessary annoyance? Do you recommend keeping two Firewalls turned on?

    Regards,

    JMT

    Re: Firewalls

    The firewall that comes with Norton Anti-Virus should automatically turn off the built-in Windows XP firewall, and you should leave it that way. Having two software firewalls active at the same time will cause conflicts and degradation of the performance of your computer. (The same goes for having two anti-virus programs active at the same time)
