Hi there,

Does anyone know if its alright to run windows firewall and Eset Smart Security Firewall at the same time? Will it not cause conflicts or system problems?

Sincerely,

Mon

You should not use more than one firewall at a time and yes, doing so can cause conflicts and problems

Hi,

I believe that the Eset firewall has outbound protection and if that is the case, I would disable the Windows one as it does not have outbound protection.
