disable bulgaurd Firewall and use another 3rd party firewall , something like spyshelter or ruinware firewall ?

Is it possible to downgrade bullgaurd internet security to just bullgaurd Anti virus and get a partial refund as you no longer include the firewall which is the reason i opted for internet security over the plain A/V ?

Seems no one wants to answer , none of the "firewall " posts  here open , you get a garbled page when you open the post . By design or a fluke ? I really would like an answer as I have 5 licenses and maintain another 50 computers I heave people buy and install Bullgaurd . Going to look for another soloution for them and the 3 I'm using with B G  if no reply .

As I have detailed in the other Firewall posts, what we take from the Windows Firewall is the Low Level Rules. What that means, put as simply as possible, is that we stoped trying to enforce those in a standalone driver, which can cause system crashes and compatibility issues, since they are fully integrated in the system anyway.

This, as you will notice today from our site has been part of our entire product strategy. 

A visual of what our Old Firewall was and what the new Firewall is now and what we plan:
