Solved Avast/router firewall question

Post by DaShiner on 21st November 2008, 8:54 am

Hi,

now my pc is running sweet again after installing a new hdd I am trying to make my pc as secure as possible.
I have these prog's installed adaware, spyware blaster, spyware guard, super anti spyware and Avast! but I want to know if I should close my routers firewall?
would the routers fw and avast conflict?

I have automatic updates selected and windows fw is activated.

Thank You!

Ha! You have a good number of antispywares there lol.

A router firewall is also known as a hardware firewall, so it would have no conflict from what I know. So you can keep your hardware and software firewalls turned on.

One software firewall is enough so you will have to choose between Avast Firewall and Windows Firewall. Wink
