    Hi Folks,

    As I understand that two firewalls are not better than one I have disabled my Windows firewall and set my ESET firewall to Automatic. Now Every time I boot Windows Security Alert warns me that both Windows and ESET report their Firewalls are disabled! Yet when I look at ESET it shows all green and Advanced Settings I shows my Firewall is still set to Automatic.

    Is this just Windows being silly or a more serious issue I need to rectify.

    I'm Using Vista Home Premium 64 bit, with Service Pack 2 and

    ESET Smart Security 5.0.95.0

    Many thanks

    Update to the latest Eset version as it might fix the issue (the fact that install is refreshed)

    Thanks Patch,

    That does look hopeful, I'll give it a try later, got things to do right now so can't mess around with all the rebooting but I'll do it tonight.

    Also thanks Cudni,

    I have ESET set to update automatically and it is reporting that I have the most up to date files available, so not sure what I should update but hopefully the suggestion made by Patch will sort this out for me

    Thanks both

    That is all good and as it should be, however, Eset does not as a matter of course install the latest software version. See for the latest
