Home, Version 2002 with SP2 Firewall, also have Norton anti
2005 anti-spyware edition with firewall. I have read somewhere that it's best to
use only one firewall, Is this correct? If so which one do you think would be
That is correct, you should only use one firewall. Using two or more
could cause many programs to stop working altogether. Also, the firewalls may
get in each others' way and cause some security holes that would not be there
with just one firewall.
As for which one to use, I cannot tell you because it really comes down to a
matter of preference. While I have not used Norton's firewall, they are a
trustworthy company and their products are normally pretty good. I do use
Windows XP's firewall and it seems to do pretty good. I have heard before that
Windows XP's firewall is a very basic one and that could mean that Norton's
firewall may have some additional security features that are not included with
Windows XP's firewall. If you find one easier to work with than the other, then
I would go with that one.
Let me know if you need anything else.
