I am running CF with cs settings, and wanted to add F-Secure AV as a complement to it. Upon installation, it identifies CF as incompatible, and states that if I continue, it will uninstall CF.

How do I bypass this action?

Secondly, in the Help file of FSAV, it states that it can be used with other firewalls but if I disable the Windows Firewall Control within the program, it displays a red message that my
system is not secure.

How do I disable WFC permanently within FSAV so I do not receive the "not protected"
message ongoing?

Thanks

Hello,
First, you need to install the f-secure and after that Comodo!
Now you have to remove Comodo then install the f-secure and after that install THE Comodo again.
Btw if it says to remove the Comodo it means they don't work with eachother.. you should not use Comodo FW with f-secure.
incompatible==avoid it :)
that red message doesn't matter don't mind it, no way to disable win fw from f-secure GUI

I think itis a fault in all of f-secure's installers. when I did use them ( Internet Security ) it gave compatibillity warnings with multiple programms I did want to install : shadow defender , peerblock , zemana , malwarebytes. so I will not use it again.
