Win10: Windows Firewall vs Avast Firewall
« on: September 01, 2015, 03:57:19 PM »
Hi,

Is Windows Firewall and Avast Firewall compatible in Win10 (can I run both at the same time?)? What about Windows Defender - shoud I disable that?

A problem I encountered when updating to Win10: Avast told me that there was a problem with AvastSvc.exe and I should check if the firewall blocked it. How do I check this? I haven't expierenced this more than one time.

Thanks!

when you install avast, win firewall and win defender should be auto disabled ... you may need to reboot 2-3 times after install
