how could i do with this info?
I am not completely sure what you mean but will try my best to explain.
At no time should you run more than one firewall at a time for many reasons, but let’s just say, they don’t get along well. So when you install a firewall, it will tell you to shut down the previous or other firewalls on your computer even if you don’ t have one or have it running. It’s just to let you know there may indeed be problems having two. So no need for worry, it’s just a warning is all.
Another note: if you go to your advanced tab in Windows xP firewall, you will see a box with a check and says LAN. I would UNCHECK it as Windows still monitors this by default. Also in the general tab, I would make sure file and printer box is CHECKED not unchecked, then by default Windows will not monitor these. I truly think Windows does this to confuse people and even some advanced users don’t know to do this. While it should be either “check the box to enable” “or don’t check it” Windows is backwards in that way.
If you mean installing Comodo Firewall, just go through the steps. I will try to do this from memory so bare with me please…
Run the setup the Comodo(version) .exe. When it tells you to make sure there are no other firewalls installed, click yes, or next or whatever it prompts you to do. You then agree to terms, install the firewall, and for you I would choose Automatically set up until you later become familiar with it. After that , you restart your computer , wait for comodo to show in the taskbar and your other programs and it’s done! Nothing to it. Remember, when you register for your free code, the second email containing the longer code will be what you use, not the first email with a shorter order code.
