Two Firewalls at one time?

Hello, Everyone: As alot of you know XP has its own Preinstalled Firewall (exit only) and for extra security I wanted to get Zone Alarm which is Compatible with XP! Now I wanted to know is it OK to run BOTH at the same time or should i disable Windows XP? Is any one running both NOW and do you have any problems?

That is exacxtly what i do at the moment, the XP firwall stops most of the ISP's pings and zonealarm keeps an eye on any more seriouse attacks or proggys accessing the web...

The XP firewall added a ~ before my ident online, which meant the bots didn't recognise me, damn things, don't wanna add teh new host, so I just disabled it, just switched from Zone Alarm to Norton Firewall - am still learning my way around it...

Buddy of mine tried running the XP firewall with Nortons firewall and he said it made his system very slow. Personally I can't see a reason to run two firewall seems like it would be opening the door to conflicts and eat up more resourses.

Yeah, I also have the internal firewall activated AND use Zone Alarm Pro for all those nasty little programmes trying to phone home !! No problems at all. I had a couple of hiccups at first, but only because of my ignorance.
Good luck.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
