    Can I run, or am I supposed to run Windows Defender if I am using the Live
    Care One Firewall already?

    No - you will find that it is disabled and One Care does its own thing.

  3. Certainly. After all, the two products serve completely separate
    functions, with no overlap, whatsoever.

    (However, you'd be better protected if you were to get rid of the Live
    Care One Firewall and use Vista's built-in one.)

  4. Erm.... A firewall application and an anti-malware application are two
    entirely separate things and serve completely different purposes.

    Indeed, but we then have to believe that Bardharlock purchased One
    Care
    just to replace the Windows firewall, ignoring the integrated Defender
    anti-spyware by switching off the anti-spyware plus anti-virus function
    of One Care - maybe so.
    The default action on installing OneCare is to disable Defender and the
    Windows firewall.

  6. All the more reason to install or re-activate Defender and the built-in
    firewall, then. One certainly wouldn't want to rely solely upon One Care.
