XP antivirus and firewall



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.

I have disabled my firewall and my own one is working fine. Do you know how to disable/remove the antivirus, i have installed my INOCULATE PE but it will not enable live monitoring because XP won't let it ,Can anybody help?:)

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.

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
