Thanks to all for the replay. I have installed the F-Secure through my ISP (Charter Communication). Charter brands the F-Secure, which means they replace most of the F-Secure refrences with its name. And as it usually happens, by doing it, Charter confuses the hell out of its custommers, and I am putting it lightly. Anyway, becuase of the branding I can only infer that it is F-Secure AntyViruse and not the Internet Security. So, I decided to install Comodo Firewall after all. Comodo and F-Secure seem to be working fine except for one minor point. Installation of Comodo turned off Windows Firewall, which is to be expected. What is not expected is that F-Secure sees the Windows Firewall turned off and thinks that there is no firewall running at all, resulting in 'Unprodected' status displayed in F-Secure. If I go to the Windows 'Config Pannel-> Windows Firewall' I can see that Windows Firewall is 'Off'' and that there is no reference to Comodo Firewall being 'On'. Is that to be expected? I am also confused by F-Secure's insistance on Windows Firewall. Does not make sense on so many levels, specially as it comes to the security aspect. It almost looks like a backdoor, as crude as it is. What gives?

Prior to installing F-Secure I had Comodo Firewall installed and runing on my Windows 7 system. the F-Secure installation forced me to uninstall the Comodo Firewall and left me with Windows Firewall, which a security risk of its own. My question is: Can I reinstall the Comodo Firewall now that F-Secure is installed and running?
