    Angry Norton Internet Worm Protection settings with ZA? => Never install 2nd Firewall

    When Norton Internet Worm Protection is installed it tells you that it will take over as Win XP's firewall?How is this done and what should be allowed and what shouldn't?Having more than one software firewall on a system can cause problems, but if this program uses attaches to Win XP's Firewall, disabling the firewall could make cause Internet Worm Protection, not to be able to function properly?
    Also, with the new updates as of late, Norton has added LuCallBackModule?
    Anti-Virus settings put in one place and given the settings for program processes would be helpful to all.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:6.1

    Default Re: Norton Internet Worm Protection settings with ZA or just Norton Program list of settings for ZA?

    Norton's Internet Worm Protection is actually a software firewall except that it only monitors a few ports that are commonly used by worms to propogate, unlike a full fldge firewall (I'd actually rate Windows XP SP2 firwall better in this aspect). Norton is trying to tell you that it want to disable Windows Firewall(which should have actually been disabled anyway since you have ZA) so that it can prevent conflicts. Of course it too can also conflict with ZA.

    I recommend you turn off Norton's Internet Worm Protection to avoid conflicts with ZA. ZA, being a full-fledge firewall, will offer better protection since it monitors all ports unlike Internet Worm Protection.
