RE: Internet Connect and Live One Care
Unlike the Windows Firewall which is manageable through registry settings,
the OneCare Firewall seems to be controlled through a proprietary database
file, so it behaves differently.
Your best bet is to disable the OneCare Firewall service and then restart
your computer. Start | Run (search) , type in Services.msc and <enter>
Browse until you find Oncare Firewall listed and doubleclick on it to open
its properties window. Set the Startup Type to disabled. Stopping it doesn't
seem to unload it from memory right away, so you will likely have to restart
your computer. Restarting the Server and Workstation services may also do
the trick without restarting.
