Thread: Two firewalls?

    Default Two firewalls?

    Is it OK to leave my original Norton Firewall enabled at the same time as having set up my recently downloaded Zone Alarm firewall? Would having these two firewalls active create a conflict?

    NO!

    Two or more Firewall, or two or more Anti-Virus programs will Conflict with each other and Provide LESS protection.

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two software Firewalls at the same time. Completely uninstall one before installing another. Use the vendor's uninstall utility or if not available, use the Windows XP add/remove software tool in the control panel.
