...I disabled the firewall the other day while installing a trusted program that suggested I do so. Then I forgot that I had disabled it and surfed for DAYS before I randomly checked it's status. Luckily, I had no problems...
Hi ddferrari , welcome to the forum
Sure, what Eric posted above and respective discussion re: Wish List voting is fine (rather correct),...
may I ask where did you find the suggestion to disable
Firewall in circumstances you've described
What about just switching to "Installation Mode"?
Have you experienced any specific troubles with that, when installing the said Software ?
As a matter of fact, you don't need even the later in case the Software is trusted
(sure not being removed from TVL - trusted vendor list)
Do you need to switch any mode, say receiving & installing the Patches from M$ ?
