I have a Dell XPS420 and the os is Vista Premium. I am at present running the Windows Firewall plus the firewall on my router. I have tried Comodo and I believe McAfee was pre installed. I have removed both of these programmes.

I have just had a look on the security centre and under Firewalls I checked what Firewalls are running and it shows three. Comodo McAfee and Windows. I can't understand this as I thought I had uninstalled the 2 third party progs. Does this mean that in all I have four firewalls running. If so how do I delete the ones I do not want. Thanks in anticipation.

look in the control panel - admin tools - services , see if the firewalls are in there if so it should be a case of disabling them (although this should have been done and deleted when you uninstalled them) and deleting the services :)

Hi Carpo, thanks for the quick response, had a look in services neither are there. Had a look in registry and found Comodo in the route file but it would not allow me to remove. Could not find anything relating to McAfee.

run Hijackthis! or any other tool that allows you to control what starts up and what dont, that normally removes things that regedit wont allow me to remove :)

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!
