OneCare turn off Windows firewall upon restart. Normal? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I reboot my computer it seems that Live OneCare shut down the Windows firewall and starts its own firewall. When I go the the Windows security center I'm told that the firewall is turned off yet OneCare tells me it is on. This is normal. Right?

  • Yes, this is normal. OneCare turns off the Windows Firewall since it has its own and you never want two firewalls running concurrently.
