    Don't think you can uninstall XP firewall.

    Disable is all that is necessary to install another firewall.. some people run both.

    To Disable.... Control panel / Network connections / Local area conn. / Properties / Advanced / Remove the check at Protect My Computer by preventing access to the internet.

    My Dell came with Norton, to uninstall I would go to Control panel / Add or remove Programs / Select Norton.

    There is no built-in anti-virus with XP so there is nothing to disable. If you could be more specific about exactly what you mean when you say XP wont let it do something then maybe someone would be able to help you.
