I apologize if this is a really stupid/obvious question.

I only recently started the trial version and I was wondering if the Firewall that comes with the Internet Security program will do the same/similar job as the Firewall that comes with Windows XP. The reason I ask is that my Windows Firewall no longer turns on (and I've tried everything I can to change that) and I was looking into Bullguard before that and thought I'd try it out.

So would the firewall that comes with this work just as well? I'm just a little paranoid, so sorry again if this is a stupid question.

Hello


There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers ;-)



The Firewall that comes with the Internet Security program will do a better job than Windows Firewall.



It is normal Bullguard will have turned Windows Firewal Off. So, don´t try to turn it on, as they will conflict.

Okay, thank you for letting me know. :) I can't turn on Windows Firewall anyway, so hopefully there will be no conflict issues. Thanks for the answer.

My pleasure :smile:
