    Default Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)

    Is it necessary to have this service running if I don't have any shared folders/files, and File and Printer Sharing is not enabled? I'm running
    WinXP SP3 with all current updates
    Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core 4800+
    415GB HDD free space
    4GB RAM
    ZASS 9.3.014.000.

    There seems to be a time delay opening email and IE when both ZA and Windows Firewall are running that's not there when WF is turned off.
    I thought in the earlier releases of ZA that WF was automatically turned off, but I don't see that recommendation any more.

    Thanks for your time

    Hi!

    ZA normally turn OFF windows firewall by default. You should not have both running. If you have then your ZA installation is not correct.

    MS ICS is governing other MS functions such as automatic windows updates and should not be disabled unless you know what you do.

    In Windows XP, WF/ICS is one service. There are no dependencies on it. Windows Automatic Updates run fine with it disabled.

    If my ZA installation is incorrect, then it has been that way as far back as, at least, early version 8. I generally do a fresh install for each update/release, and when I see that it seems to be running well, I import my security settings. None of that has changed the way WF/ICS is stopped, started, or running.

    Thanks anyhow, but I don't think that's the answer
