sp2 and firewall

  jon2 19:44 10 Sep 2004

I like the firewall I allready use, will I be able to turn off the firewall that comes with SP2?

yes and yes

more like yes and maybe you can turn off XPs firewall but there are known issues with some firewalls suggest you check the website for your particular firewall if it is zone alarm PC advisor is supplying the latest version of this and AVG virus protection on its cover disc (also SP2 as a seperate disc)good value for £3.50

forgot to mention you are right to stick with your own firewall as while SP2 is an improvement its firewall is still crud

and it is PC advisor issue 112

Why don't you leave them both running?...TT

its not advisable to run more than 1 firewall at the same time you will get conflict faults
