After I installed Norton Internet Security on my Windows XP Home PC ( which was never connected to any domain), I was trying to turn off Windows Firewall but realized that On/Off buttons are grayed. What should I do to turn off the Windows Firewall so I don't have 2 firewalls on one machine?

Did NIS do it automatically?

It might. Since I didn't pay attention on those buttons before I installed NIS, I can't really tell for sure. Thanks. Tao
