Do I have to deactivate all installed Firewalls, so I can use the Avira Firewall?

During the installation, Avira Premium Security Suite / Avira Internet Security detect the active Windows Firewall on Windows XP, Vista or 7. It is recommended to make sure it is deactivated, so you will not have multiple Firewalls running simultaneously.

You should uninstall any other Personal Firewalls on your computer, too. Otherwise you might experience problems with your Internet connection or with Internet applications.
