Did you know? If you access the Internet without having a firewall turned on, your computer could be attacked by hackers, viruses, spyware and adware.

You should at least have a software-based firewall installed on your computers and turned on, before making the connection to the Internet. The best Internet protection you can get for computers is a hardware-based firewall, also known as a router. Routers hide your computers from the Internet by implementing network address translation (NAT).

Occassionally, you will need to turn off the firewall to find out if it is the cause of problems with your network or internet access. If you discover the firewall is blocking access to your network resources or the Internet, then you will need to properly configure the firewall to allow access to your resources. Be sure to turn the firewall back on as soon as the problem is solved. Do not stay connected to the Internet for long periods of time while the firewall is off!

Follow the steps below to turn off the BlackICE™ firewall.

How to Turn Off the BlackICE™ firewall

Firewalls are a good thing, but if they are not properly configured, they can cause extreme frustration. Instead of turning the firewall off, you should first properly configure it. If you are still having problems after properly configuring the firewall, then turn it off to test whether it is the cause of the problem.

Here's how to turn off the BlackICE™ firewall:


Step 1: With the right mouse button, click on the 'BlackICE™' icon in the System Tray area.

Step 2: With the left mouse button, click on 'Stop BlackICE Engine'.
