Hello (my very first post)

Was wondering if someone can weigh in and advise on whether my Windows Firewall should be turned ON or OFF being I have Norton Internet Security.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium (sp1).


Thank you in advance.

Hello.

You should only have one software firewall active at a time. If you opt to use the firewall built into NIS, then your Windows Firewall should be disabled.

Hope that helps.
