    I know you shouldn't run two firewalls at the same time but if you want to try another can you just disable the current one or does it have to be deleted? I currently have ZA free and it is very easy to disable but I would like to experiment with some others and would rather not delete ZA as I likely may go back to it but I didn't know if that would cause problems when installing the new firewall.

    Thanks.

    Yes, it causes problems. Even a clean uninstall is sometimes necessary.
    So changing a firewall is not something you should consider only to be able to feel how it works, unless very unsatisfied with your current security setup.
