I purchased a one-year subscription to the AV, using Windows 7 operating system. Everything went well. Then I noticed in the GUI that the Webroot firewall was on and activated. Then I went to Security Center and saw that Windows 7 firewall was on, so I deactivated it. Then the Security Center flagged this, saying that there was no active firewall. Just wondering what's going on. Either I don't have a firewall with Webroot AV, or the firewall is not being recognized. Should I reactivate the Windows 7 firewall?

Exactly as I used Prevx since 2004 and Webroot has continued and built upon it greatly. And This is always great to watch.

Does Webroot's firewall also works with McAfee's firewall, as in McAfee's total protection?
Yes it should just make sure McAfee's firewall lets WSA have full right's to the system and the Internet! Also please see Here.
