    This may have been brought up before but I could not find anything on it in a search. All the PCs in my network with ESS also have the Windows Firewall turned on and when it is turned off it states the system is unprotected which seems like it does not recognise the ESS firewall. I keep turning the Windows firewall off but when the PC restarts, the Windows firewall is back on again. Does anyone know how to fix this.

    Sorry for that "What?" . :thumb:

    Well , I have seen once a freeze but it went away after restart and after waiting for about 20 minutes till Windows rebuilds its bases . You may have had to restart a few times . Or don't delete the folder but just rename it in case of some kind of failure like this

    I should have explained this a bit better. In Security Centre, under firewall, it says the Eset firewall is on. Under Windows Firewall, it keeps turning the Windows Firewall on and when I turn it off, it says the system is not protected as no firewall is turned on (even though the Security Centre says Eset is on). I keep turning the Windows Firewall off as it is interfering with the running of programs and I don't want two firewalls operating.

    Then simply disable Security Center's service (stop using it and rely on ESET's firewall and what it says) . If it says it is ON , then it should be ON :thumb:
