How to avoid destryoing your Windows Vista firewall

Some programs, such as Netscape and GameSpy Arcade, will try -without warning you!- to add themselves to the Windows firewall which will majorily destroy your Windows Vista firewall so that you:

-Cannot access the internet anymore with most programs.
-Cannot switch the firewall off
-Cannot change the settings of the firewall.

Any try to change this will result in no effect.

I even failed to

-Install an alternative firewall instead

(It just resulted in Windows Vista to crash when I tried Jetico Personal Firewall freeware (for Windows 2000/XP/2003/XP x64/2003 x64/Vista/Vista x64).

Here is how to avoid destryoing your Windows Vista firewall:

1) Create a system restore point using the Windows System Recovery (it will lead you to the Windows Computer Security)

2) Disable the Windows Vista Firewall

3) Install the prg

4) Reenable the Windows Vista Firewall
