    i am using bitdefender and webroot as the little helper. Webroot and any av will or should working perfect, right. But is it the same for the firewall? After the last update of webroot, it looks that the firewall is on. If i remember in the past it was off.:) Should i turn it off, thanks

    You can keep the FW on. It's only an outbound connection fw. Very compatible. I even consider it to be complementary to other fws.:)

    If you're using Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus, the update now includes the firewall component. Previously WSA-A did not have the firewall. You can leave it on as it does co-exist with others.

    if you turn it off it puts it in your face that it is off
    duh, if you turned it off you already know that

    I think that is because one should not forget to turn it On again.
    Same if you turn off protection it tells you it's turned off etc etc.. :)

    Just leave it on. It's a network-only firewall that doesn't ask questions on default settings and enhances security while co-existing with all other known network firewalls without trouble.

    and if you don't want it on?

    kind of brings to mind Windows 8 Metro
