    Do any of you know if these two will work peacefully together on a Windows 7 platform?
    If yes, are there any settings changes I would need to make?
    Thanks.

    Hi Hugger,

    This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.

    Norton Internet Security 2010 contains a real-time scanning and protection engine as well as a full-featured firewall. It appears as though Defensewall also contains a real-time component and therefore it can definitely cause conflicts with Norton Internet Security. You should never have more than one firewall and one real-time antivirus/ internet security application installed or you can run into conflicts which can leave your system vulnerable to infection.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I'd suggest you to try for yourself.

    I'd never stick to one security application only.

    It misses a thing (everyone does) and you're lost.

    Best Regards

    This is absolutely wrong statement. If an application is built right way, it will never cause any compatibility issues can't be fixed up (one exception- anti-virus components, but DW doesn't have it).

    Hi Hugger,

    I am glad I could provide you with the correct information regarding the use of Norton Internet Security 2010 along with other real-time security products.

    The following document from Symantec provides some more detail about how running more than one security product can adversely affect computer performance.

    Why you should not run more than one security product on your computer

    Thank you,
    Mike

    Your information is incorrect. You just mislead people. Hugger was asking you about two HIPS components compatibility, you answer is about two anti-virus components performance and stability issues. DefenseWall is not an anti-virus!

    If I wanted to go with only one product I wouldn't be looking for something that compliments DW.
    Though I used only one product years ago, and paid dearly for it, I currently would prefer electrocution to having to rely on only one form of protection.
    Thanks for your help. I'll be staying with DW and some of the other tools I use to protect myself from the evil deeds of Mrs. Click.
