:scratch: An easy one hopefully ? I've been having a few issues when trying to install Zone Alarm Firewalll software onto my PC. (Telling me there are conflicts, DLL problems, RUNDL erros etc) Have noticed on some Firewall software websites that it's often necessary to disable the Windows XP built in Firewall prior to installing another Firewall solution. Is this process necessary before installing Zone Alarm and if so, then how do I disable the default Firewall within XP ? ALSO, if there is a built in Firewall within XP, then why do I need to install another Firewall such as Zone Alarm ? Looking forward to some helpful advice please Cheers Vinylman

hi,

your problem installing ZA are probably not related to xps built in firewall.

yes if use another you should disable xps.

xp Service Pack 2 provides better "protection" than xp and the firewall is on by default.

third party firewalls are more robust than xps

turning on/off varies from xp to xp sp2
