WARNING!

Postby Althea Talbot » Wed Nov 09, 2005 6:43 pm

Whatever you do, do NOT update or upgrade Zonealarm if you run it. It's bugged to the point that it was randomly cutitng my internet off after updateing, and took an uninstall, a reboot into safe mode, deleteing the file it left behind, then removing any trace of it form the system registrey...JUST tog et my internet eworking again

if you are worried about someone hacking your machine, get rid of the software firewall and get a router that has a hardware firewall on it. much, much safer and no updates needed. i love mine

I have tried Bitdefender, F-Prot, F-Secure, Symantec and ZoneLabs firewalls and havent been 100% satisifed with any of them. Right now my VMware Windows XP (The Virtual testmachine I use) are running F-Secure Inernet Security and it hazzles me with not being updated, even after updating it. Have to log off and log into Windows again to make it understand the new defintion files.

When it comes to Zonealarm, it gets the job done, but I know a lot of people that have used Zonealarm and their computer setup didnt like it. Guess different hardware / software combinations always a potential problem.

I also got a hardware router myself, a $350 Draytek WLAN ADSL router and only using antivirus on my computers and have never had problems with anything spooky.

Just remember though, that almost all home-routers blocks the incoming ports, but let all traffic go out without blocking :)
