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.

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!
