One Care, Firewall, and my Linksys wireless router... RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    After installing One Care today I noticed that the Windows Firewall on the control panel is no longer controllable, it states that it is set by a "group setting." 

     

    My question is:  Does One Care change my wireless router settings?  I installed One Care on my lap top today too and its firewall is inaccessable as well...both turned off.

     

    Am I now open to the world??

  • OneCare includes a full featured 2 way firewall that is configured from within OneCare. The Windows firewall is disabled by OneCare to prevent conflict as you should never have two software firewalls active at the same time.
