Firewall Alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since our LAN is protected by a hardware firewall device, I do not need or use software firewalls when I am in the office or at home (firewall appliance there too. Any way to turn off the repetative alerts that the firewall is off everytime I start my computer? It is very annoying! Is there a registry hack to turn off the alerts? Otherwise it seems to be a worthwhile product.

  • No. You cannot disable the OneCare firewall and not be considered at risk by OneCare. There is no harm in leaving the OneCare firewall on even if you are behind a hardware based firewall.
