hi! This is Crespo calling.Need some advice re: Firewalls. I have just the basic one that comes with Windows XP.I would like to instal a more powerful one such as the free ZoneAlarm & i also intend to download the new WindowsOneCare programme which has a new Firewall in it as well.My question is can i install these two extra Firewalls or(like anti-virus) can i only have one running on my lap-top? Totally new to these extra security measures - in fact new to everything! As always, any help from anyone will be v.v. appreciated. Cheers! C.

Just install one firewall, to have more than one will lead to conflicts, as will the installation of more than one AV program.

best shot install zone alarm and turn the windows firewall of as phono has said to avoid conflict only use one firewall
