I am currently running Win XP which has a built in firewall. I'm also running PC-cillin 2000 for anti-virus. The providers of PC (Trend) have offered me an upgrade to PC-cillin 2002 at a reduced rate. The thing is that the 2002 version has a firewall as well. If I opt for the upgrade, will I have problems with the 2 firewalls trying to duke it out for control, or will disabling one of them fix the problem. It also seems a waste to upgrade and have to disable one of the bells and whistles.

You will need to disable one, and the XP firewall is very basic and one-way only I believe. I run with the XP firewall off, as it sometimes prevents me printing over the LAN. (I have a router between the PC and the Net which gives a degree of firewalling)
