Not to my knowledge. They work perfectly together.

Yeah me too as far as I know but I was sitting with someone who has been misinformed and was pretty adamant that he was right and has been running with the Windows Firewall only :lol:

They've been working well together for me, and I have Windows firewall turned off, not sure why anymore, I think because of our wireless setup.

I've been using that combo for four years and never had a problem between the two.

@jojo, you don't want to run two firewalls at once, they'll interfere with each other. Same with two AVs.

heck i dont run much....
just stay off the porn sites and be warry of your emails....and its worked for me...

although i run AV scans weekly and all sorts of others....my experience with them is they are resource hogs...

maybe they have come out with something new lately....

what would be a good setup to use....
mcafee any good? doesnt the like deluxe edition have a firewall and AV all included...
anyone have that running?

or is the setup mentioned above a good one to use...

They won't interfere as they both are not running on your CPU and accessing the same areas as say Windows Firewall and Zone Alarm.
