Well I think I get free Norton but I uninstalled that awhile ago for a Kapersky trial because it didn't do jack and I had to get rid of something. After the trial ended I deleted Kapersky and haven't been using anything. I don't visit sketch sites so I think I'm ok, but for certain cracked games (Quake 4, and I hear The Sims 3 which I might try at some point) need you to use a firewall to block the online verification.
I'm a n00b at this stuff. Is there a free (either through pirating or freeware, whichever gets the job done most easily) firewall I could use that will do this job very simply, without much knowledge on my part?
I brought up my lack of antivirus on the thought that maybe there's one I could use that comes packaged with a firewall, but the main thing I want is the firewall, because I don't really use this PC much and an antivirus isn't very high on my priorities. Anyone who's more familiar with this stuff please help point me in the right directions.
btw I use Vista, so it has to be compatible with it
