McAfee security center personal firewall is too agressive.
Posted on 2006-06-13
I am running XP Pro SP2 on a P4 dell laptop. When I enable XPs windows firewall I can access the internet very quickly. When I also enable the McAfee security center personal firewall, my system is not able to access most web pages and slows to a crawl. I would just like to disable the McAfee and run with only the windows firewall. Is that a reasonable option?
In the office I turn off windows firewall and enable nortons firewall and am very happy. I just cant seem to find any machine that I like the way it runs McAfee. Is there a way to make McAfee less agressive? Or do I need it in the mix at all for the personal firewall?
