    Firewall

    I installed PC cillin in October and upgraded to Trend Micro Internet
    security yesterday; since then I have nothing but problems and have kept
    installing and uninstalling Micro trend a couple of times (keeps crashing),
    now I've removed it completely and can't turn on Windows firewall; I get 2
    error messages: first one says: security center can't turn on Windows
    firewall and then when I try to do it manually, as suggested, I try 'update
    settings' and get another message: Windows firewall was unable to make the
    requested updates.
    If I remember correctly I had the same problem when I tried One care before
    going for Micro trend. Can anybody help? I use Vista

    RE: Firewall

    Hi Lorilo,

    The problem is most likely to be caused by a conflict between the two
    programs. This is why it is never a good idea to run more than one Internet
    Security program on a machine at the same time - indeed, it is also not a
    good idea to have more than one installed at the same time. For your
    information, I use Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 and have had no problems
    with it at all. The safest way to solve your problem would be to reinstall
    Vista and only install the actual Internet Security program that you plan to
    be using.

    RE: Firewall

    Thanks but I' rather not re-install Vista as I'm not that good a pc
    programming and wouldn't really know where to start - unless I follow an
    idiot's guide that is!! - anything else simpler?

    RE: Firewall

    Hi Lorillo,

    Assuming that you are using an upgrade version, then if you follow the
    instructions in my post 'Clean Install Windows Vista Using Upgrade Media',
    also in this newsgroup (dated 9/21/2007), you should be able to solve this
    problem. If, however, your version is a full version then you can still
    follow this post, but obviously you will not need to perform a second upgrade
    installation. In this case, at Step 2 you should enter the Product Key. Also,
    Steps 3-9 will obviously be inapplicable and, after installation, you should
    continue directly to Step 10.

    RE: Firewall

    Hi Lorilo,

    Yes, you will lose everything. However, what I advise you to do would be to
    do a backup of all of your data files to removeable media. You should be able
    to use the copy function in explorer to do this. Remember to check that this
    backup contains
    everything that you need and that it is working correctly BEFORE you do your
    reinstallation. The actual programs (Microsoft office suite, etc) WILL need
    reinstalling as well. Depending on your ISP, your emails may be able to be
    saved on the server for later retrieval. This is true for IMAP accounts, if
    yours is a POP3 account then perhaps someone else can advise on this.

    Well Dwarf, thank you very much I am very grateful. I've just bought a USB
    flash drive so I will do what you suggest. I'll be in touch soon to confirm
    everything's working (or to cry that nothing's working anymore and I need
    even more help!!)
    Kind regards

    Download and save the above anti-virus program to your Desktop; do NOT
    install at this stage!

    Uninstall Trend micro from your computer altogether.

    Double-click on the Avast file, install and it will auto update.

    Vista'a Firewall will turn itself back on; or allow you to do it!

    An easier way than redoing your computer.

    Re: Firewall

    A couple of things to try;

    -check that the Windows Firewall service is set to automatic start--
    Administrative Tools-Services - Windows Firewall - double click the entry
    and set the startup type to Automatic. There is also a manual start button
    to get it running immediately. If that doesn't help or if the startup
    setting is already automatic check at Trend Micro if they have a utility to
    completely remove their product.. some of these programs do not uninstall
    cleanly using the normal method.

    You can also resort to a Vista system restore. Pick the most recent restore
    point before you installed the Trend Micro suite. That usually fixes things.
