  1. i really dont understand whats wrong . but here are the symptoms

    when i start my windows the real time system protection of eset is non functional and after a while a pop up comes saying that no firewall is turned on and the real time system protection starts as well as the firewall .

    so what causes this conflict between eset and firewall ?

    Windows prefers its own Cr** and the Security Wizard does not recognize all other OEM tools like A/V & Firewalls.

    1) disable the Windows Security Center [this stops the repeated popups]
    2) if you have a version of Eset with the firewall, then also disable the Windows Firewall [which stops the conflict]

    3) run and configure Eset A/V & Firewall and make sure it is always started
