It is a good idea to disable Windows firewall (or any other firewall) when you run another because the 2 programs can conflict and cause a variety of problems...What firewall are you referring to?? If you mean the Windows Firewall, the answer is no... It is not a good choice since it apparently still only blocks incoming attacks...
and is this firewall good enough in this day n age?
welp thats all i have running i did have Mcafee going but let it go , actually i did'nt even have the default going until tonight did'nt even know windows had that in here this is a new computer.
Better go and buy one.
