    Default Disabled Win firewall

    Hey guys, could someone shed some light on ...

    A few days after installing ZA I took a look at the settings within the program and noticed it had checked the box to "disable Windows firewall".

    Is this usual? If so why?

    Regards

    Yes this is by design..

    By Default Zone Alarm Turns off Windows Firewall, Because You are Only allowed One Firewall otherwise Both firewalls would Block Each other and your computer woulf be un-protected..

    *** REMEMBER this Security Rule:

    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.

    Just One, Not Two -- Never use two Anti-virus products 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.

    Windows Firewall is the Only Software Firewall that can be turned Off and does not have to be Uninstalled, all other 3rd party Firewall and Anti-Virus programs must be uninstalled, or they will Conflict with Zone Alarm and reduce your protection..
