Uninstall Live OneCare without restoring Windows Firewall defaults RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to prevent the Windows Live OneCare Uninstaller from re-enabling the Windows Firewall with default settings upon uninstallation of WLOC?  I would like to uninstall WLOC and have it either leave the Windows Firewall disabled or have it restore the Windows Firewall to the way that it was configured prior to installing WLOC.  Otherwise, it is basically impossible to uninstall WLOC remotely...well, you can uninstall it, but the machine never comes back because the default Windows Firewall settings block RDP. 

    Any help is much appreciated!!

  • No, there's no way to prevent the firewall from being enabled upon uninstall of OneCare.
