Question about firewalls

  1. This will be really quick: I have windows XP SP2 and have the built in firewall. I want to install ZoneAlarm Firewall on top of that. Can I keep the old one on or should i disable it?

    Should be able to.

    You should be able to. Click Start, then Control Panel. Then hit Internet Security, lowest one in right. Then click Windows Firewall on the bottom left.

    Installing another firewall SHOULD automatically disable the (very basic, inadequate) XP-firewall.

    With Norton IS installed, it does not; need to disable the Windows version manually.
