Thread: Best Firewall

  1. #1
    Hi,

    Been using Windows Firewall on a recent new build and it seems ok but think I should now change to the best.... Which is?

    I've no idea... Some say Outpost is easy to use and memory lite so i may try that, any other good suggestions pls?

    I know this has been done before but those threads are quite old now so I wonder if things have changed now.

    Thanks

    So many to choose from I would be happy with 5 or 6 Ive tried but changed for one reason or another . I'm leaning more to a full Internet Security Suite like F-Secure or Symantec Client Security . Stand alone ones are easy tho , I like Look "N" Stop or Zonealarm Pro .


    There is a comparison here but keep in mind some pay for a higher ranking .

    Found this old site to test your Firewall settings .

    i tried zone alarm and that is the only one i've tried. didn't like it. even though i gave permission for programs to run za still didn't allow them to run. also, zapro or whatever also has the game function and that crap didnt' work either. internet games always stuttered. meh, windows firewall works for me. lol, if that really even works.

    Well you know they work when you can't share thru p2p or use MSN.

    For me Outpost does the job.

    I got a small problem...
    I got outpost (from a man in a dark alley if you know what I mean) and it worked great but I pressed wrong update button and it updated program and now says its time to renew?? I've uninstalled and re-installed but it still says it, must have planted something in my registry or something.
    Anyone know how to bypass this pls?
