Re: Windows Firewall

Robert. The Microsoft bit was a scam, its highly doubtful ANY Norton support tech would send you to that as well. I seriously hope you didn't fall for the $600 bit. What is the actual issue you were having which prompted you to contact Norton support? We can help with that here.

When you install Norton on a Windows machine it will disable most features of the Windows security suite and manage the Norton firewall in its place. The Windows firewall on W10 service will remain enabled for Windows Update to properly function. Without a third party antivirus program Windows Security will manage the Windows system firewall in the absence of a third party software install taking its place.
