I disabled Win firewall and I am using PC Tools Firewall Plus.

Is disabling Win firewall going to affect somehow Trend Micro Antivirus+   ?

In other words, is Trend Micro using any Win firewall services/ components?

Thanks!

Hi Claudiu, 

For your question, disabling Windows Firewall won't affect Trend Micro Security. But Trend Micro Security has Firewall Booster feature that works with Windows Firewall. Here's a help doc for your reference:

You can optionally turn it on or off.

Please let us know if your concern has been addressed by us. Thank you!

Hi claudiu_botezatu,

PC Tools Firewall Plus is not a good idea, it is not longer supported, for you information.

Kind regards,
Tom
