Security center reports both windows firewall and eset firewall activated


Recommended Posts

Just did a clean reinstall of windows 10 pro x64

and now security center says both windows firewall and esets firewall are both running at the same time.

It also say it can cause conflict running them at the same time.

 

This have happened before as well.

What's happening, why does this occur and how to fix this?

 

Haven't changed anything in the registry since this is a Clean install.

 

Eset Smart Security v.9.0.375

Windows 10 511.164 Pro x64

all updates to date.

You can turn the Win 10 firewall manually by doing this: hxxp://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/turn-windows-firewall-on-off#turn-windows-firewall-on-off=windows-7 .

 

Hopefully after a reboot, the Win 10 firewall will show this:

This is how the Win 10 firewall should work with the Eset firewall enabled. The Win 10 firewall is not completely disabled since Eset uses components of it; primarily the Windows Filtering Platform component.

We're not suppose to turn off windows firewall then apps won't update.

??? The Win firewall plus Eset firewall with default settings do not block outbound connections. Therefore, neither will have any impact on your applications being able to update.

 

The problem with running two firewalls is a possible conflict with inbound connections. Only one firewall that monitors network connections should be active at any time.

????? You said turn off the windows firewall. Then apps won't update so that's not a solution.

That's the whole problem with running both firewalls at the same time.

Windows firewall do say that the settings are handled by ESET. So maybe security center theres something wrong with.

Well i'll try to reinstall ESS once again.

It's a general problem of version 9 that some users have and it still has not been fixed by ESET,

I believe there is a problem with the Win 10 security center on this regard. Since Eset in handling the Win 10 firewall settings, that is all that matters. You could just ignore the Security Center warning.

I Checked the Windows Firewall Settings and mine doesn't say that eset firewall is handling it anymore, like it just to. It just says it's on.

 

ESS 9.0.375 GUI says you are protected and looks as usual.

 

 

ESS 9.0.375

Win 10 586.164 Pro x64 (Official, non-insider) Clean install.

(All updates)
