Windows firewall

By no idea
Aug 7, 2006
  1. I turned off Windows firewall, but I didn't get the error in system tray.
    Also, when I open Security Center in Control panel it shows that the Firewall is tuned "ON" and there is no "Recommendations" button.
    Does that mean that my Windows firewall is still "on"?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Windows firewall is crap. If you don`t have a software firewall installed, you should get one ASAP.

    The free Zonealarm or the free Kerio firewalls are both very good. You can get them HERE and HERE.
