Mcafee Firewall and Windows 7 Firewall

Hello everyone !


I recently installed Mcafee Virus Scan Plus on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits ( RC ) , and I just noticed in the Control Panel that Windows Firewall and Mcafee Personal Firewall are both turned on . It seems weird because on my other PCs ( Windows XP and Vista ) , when I installed my Mcafee product, Windows Firewall was automatically disabled ( turn off ) . Well this doesn't seem to be the case in Windows 7 . Is this normal or is it a bug ? I donno if this usually happens on Windows 7 or it just happened with me due to some error , did it happen with anyone running Windows 7 ? Should I manually turn off Windows Firewall ?


I have an additional question , is there a way I can test the performance of Mcafee Personal Firewall ? I am worried about the security Mcafee offers on Windows 7 ( I do not doubt the great security it offers on Windows XP and Windows Vista , I am actually a very happy Mcafee Customer for more than 2 years ) .


Thank you in advance ,


Sincerely ,


Leeeeeeelo .
