Before installing Online Armor, it is important to uninstall any existing firewall software that you may have installed on your computer. Software firewalls are not compatible, and having more than one firewall installed on your computer can, and will, cause unpredictable networking and/or system stability issues. (The Windows Firewall cannot be uninstalled, but should be disabled to avoid potential conflicts. Online Armor will automatically disable the Windows Firewall.)
