I have windows xp home installed and am using AOL as my ISP. I have installed the windows xp basic firewall and now wish to install Norton firewall. My problem is that I cannot uninstall windows own firewall, I have tried all the procedures as laid down on Microsoft website and have even purchased a windows xp book and have tried all the various ways to close windows xp firewall but all to no avail. Has anyone any ideas on this. Thanks in advance to anyone who may reply.
Thanks to all who replied but unfortunately its not that simple have tried all the above suggestions before posting this. When I right click on the AOL connection the box comes up that allows access to properties but when I click it nothing happens. Have also tried clicking advanced tab at top of page but it does not give me access to firewall connection. The firewall connection is shown connected. Any other ideas anyone other than shutting down AOL which I shall be doing soon anyway. Thanks in advance.
