Temporarily stopping firwall and av protection

  geedad 23:50 26 Apr 2005

I have been advised to disable av software and firewall protection to ensure uninterrupted Dvd authoring and copying.
Has anyone any advice on this ?

Unplug your modem if you are on broadband before disabling anything. And remember to restart your AV and firewall before you reconnect. A unprotected XP system can pick up a infection in seconds

As to whether it will improve anything...you can only try. My Av and firewall are never off, and it has never caused me any problems.
