XP firewall or zone alarm?
    #3096027 - 09/05/04 08:56 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

I've been using zone alarm for a while as my firewall.. I did a windows update and got this new security alerts thing that shows the XP firewall enabled.. which i didn't know I had before.. two firewalls is bad no? Which should I disable?

New firewall in sp2 is actually pretty good, compared to the earlier one.

you shouldn't have any problems running two software firewalls. since windows firewall just blocks ports for a few services zone alarm lets you give access to programs which in turn relays your port information to accept or block. i'd say keep both definiteley. if you having problems take off the M$ firewall and just use the zone alarm.

If that security update you download was SP2, then yes, that firewall is fine. It works basically the same as ZA. Actually, it can be a little better since it works on the network level, ZA runs above that on the OS.
