Hello...

I had R-Firewall installed on my computer a while ago (not anymore) I'm pretty sure it's completely uninstalled, cant see anything to do with it anywhere anyway.

However, notifications from Windows Security center pop up about it occasionally (if the firewall has failed to start for example) even if I am only using windows own firewall. Is there a way to correct this?

Thankoo in anticipation.

Reinstall the former...uninstall it using Add/Remove Programs.

Do this after you have temporarily disabled/ceased to use the XP firewall. Restart the XP firewall after removing your old firewall properly.

Thanks for your reply.

Last time, I would have thought I uninstalled it with Revo, however, I did it as you advised this time and it made no difference.

It's not a major issue as such, more of a nag really...I just find it odd that windows security center cant forget it.

Regards

This may do the trick.

Have not had occasion to use it myself but am familiar with the Author, RejZoR, and some of his other work. I would trust it to be clean and free of malware.

Thanks Louis.

My preference is to usually do such things manually. But, I run with the Security Center off so never had cause to use the app. And it`s a lot easier for most Users to let a trusted app do such things for then to go poking around in what is uncharted territory for them.
