    Cannot access internet after installing Online armor


    I use the firewall Online Armor from Emisisoft. It works perfectly on windows 7 but when I installed it on win 8 I cannot access internet. During the installation it asked to install some kind of network so I allowed it and also added emisisoft to the trusted vendors on win 8. So is there any way to remove Emisisoft from trusted vendors list on win 8?

    The easy solution is to remove the 3rd party firewall software and retest. If OK, you need to understand the installation parameters before attempting a reinstall and I'm sure all that information is available at the Online Armour website. BTW, I am not a fan of 3rd party firewall products as I feel they are not needed; however, many diasagree and are adament about the need for a 3rd party solution to provide additional protection. Good luck.

    Is it the internet you cannot access or just web sites?

    I already re-installed the firewall but the problem isnt solved. I just want to remove Emisisoft from the trusted software vendor list so that it won't be able to install the network app which comes with Online Armor
