ZoneAlarm firewall

  tonyx1302 09:58 21 May 2004

Morning all. I have just installed the free addition of ZoneAlarm for its firewall package.
Do I now untick the box in the advanced tab of my 'dial-up connections',to disable my windows firewall. If so, does the ZoneAlarm just kick in to replace the windows firewall?
Hoping the above is understandable!!!!

The current Windows XP firewall is not of very great value in any case.

Just disable it and configure ZA as requred (a tip - configure it for manual updates, not that it is updated all that often).

If you need any help with configuring ZA, try here:

You should also disable the Alerts and Logs feature, otherwise you will worry unnecessarily...:-)

Thanks Stuartli for your reply. I have done as you suggested and everything is working fine.
Thanks again
