When you install CIS it should disable the Windows firewall automatically, which is desired. However, there have been instances where, for whatever reason, this hasn’t happen, in which case, you should disable the Windows firewall manually.
You will not gain any benefit from running two firewall simultaneously, in fact, the opposite effect is more than likely.
I do have my Win 7 Firewall off. But I just thought I ask since I went onto my banking site. And it’s got all new security setup on their system. So I was about to login and a pop came up saying I had no Firewall enabled. Which I do and it’s Comodo.
No I just went to my Bank via my Browser. I have had no other issue apart from today, to when I was about to log in. Mind you the home page of this bank. (Which I won’t say for legal reason) said we have improved our security system. If you need help ring us. I maybe do or not. Depends on what you think EricJH.
So that is why I looked at my Firewall of my Computer system and it was off.
And that is where I came to post my first Question on the New Topic.
Yeah On the home page where I wish to log-in you need to press OK then the URL of the bank turned green. Then the lock was shown, and then on the top right it shown bank logo then I looked at it by hovering over it showed my Identified by VeriSign.
So, I moved my mouse arrow onto Username and I was about to enter it in. Then all of a sudden a Pop-up showed. Saying Warning your system firewall is off. Please turn it on before you continue. Then under it, it said if you need help please call us. So that is where I closed the webpage. Then looked at my firewall and it was off. So I rang the bank in the end. I did not discuss my issue with them.
