mcafee firewall clashes with norton antivirus

  gibbsy 17:48 25 Jan 03

I've been using Norton anti-virus for some time, and all's been ok. I've just installed Mcafee firewall3, (freebee of a mag coverdisk),and since then, I can't open emails. Emails are scanned with Norton 'popproxy', and I can't seem to get Mcafee firewall to allow 'poproxy' access. Any ideas?

Im having a nightmare with my firewall too...Im using norton, and i have norton syst works 2003...but i find the firewall slows the pages down, and stops certain pictures, and buttons from showing...

is there a site to look at to find the right settings???

Hi experience of norton and mc afee
is they are complicated.

if you can't get them to work right you might like to try zonealarm fire wall and avg anti-virus. they are both free and once installed they work fine.

zone alarm click here

avg click here

not much help with your problems but a different solution

hope this helps

Also you could try Sygate Personal Firewall
click here
I had Norton a/v and Sygate running ok together

Thanks guys, but I'm sure there must be a way of adjusting Mcafee to allow 'poproxy' to act
