  • It is the same for OneCare running on any version of Vista or on XP. Open OneCare, click on Change Settings. There is an option to disable the firewall on the firewall tab and virus and spyware protection on the Viruses and Spyware tab.

    Why would you want to disable it?

  • The game not loading, but shutting down the PC or crashing Windows can be due to many different things. Go ahead and turn off OneCare to see if that makes a difference, but I think you'll probably want to see if the game developer has support information on their web site. There may also be a forum dedicated to the game where you'll find help.
