Firewall exceptions - "No firewall is on"

Discussion in 'Security Software' started by Richard Fangnail, Mar 2, 2007.

  1. I recently upgraded from XP SP1 to SP2 and changed from Norton AV 2006
    to the latest AVG. I just started up and a balloon tip appeared that
    said "No firewall is on."

    I checked the Windows Security box and it said the firewall was on,
    but some exceptions were on. Three of the exceptions were exe files
    that start with avg. Should I changed that?

    I looked through my AVG and saw no firewall properties although these
    are mentioned in their help files.

    I've been using it like this for a few days but this is the first time
    I've seen that balloon tip.

  2. I found a lot of threads of people complaining about that balloon
    tip, but they all had their own firewall. I've never had my own

    Did you uninstall Norton (AV) via Add/Remove Programs? Did you then run the
    removal tool ?

    Did you enable the Windows Firewall?

    What does Security Center have to say about the status of your AV and
    Automatic Updates?
