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.

Actually, that depends on which version of Windows lakan299 is running. XP's firewall does not have outbound protection, but Vista and Windows 7's firewall do.

Either way, Eset is probably a little tighter anyway. I've heard good things about their products. :thumbsup:

So yeah, disable the Windows Firewall.

Ooops, you are very right Ninja. I didn't even think about that. I am so use to XP that I forget other people are not using it.

Haha...yeah, we get so used to what we have that we forget to remember how the other Microsoft OS's are different. Don't sweat it.

Cheers! :thumbsup:
