My first post so forgive me if I get it wrong! (:SHY)
When I started with broadband a few years ago I installed Sygate Personal Firewall. I had some problems and migrated to Zone Alarm (Free) as it was (and is) so highly recommended.
As a matter of total curiosity a week ago I disabled Zone Alarm to try COMODO – and rather liked it – I also was touched by the sincerity of: “[i]And this is our CEO’s explanation as to why its free! https://forums.comodo.com/index.php/topic,764.0.html[/i]”
Before I put too much time into configuring the Comodo setup I took a look at other free firewalls for Windows 2000. I googled Kerio, highly recommended somewhere or other for W2K, but was put off from even downloading it from (what I call) “dubious” sites, full of “cracks” and “XXX”s!!!
I would like to know if other members of this forum (I don’t mean you Melih!) would like to comment on my current decision to uninstall ZA and learn to live with c.o.m.o.d.o.
I am an old small home user, run W2K on an old PC, don’t play games, surf a lot with Firefox, exchange less than 10 emails a day using Outlook, use about 6GB of my 20GB H/D. I do get a lot of spam (now defeated with Choice Mail - www.choicemail.com). I have a cable broadband connection on all day, off at night. Use AVG virus protection daily and run AdAware/SpyBot/Defender about once a week.
As I really want to stick with one firewall or another any thoughts/advice from Forum members greatly appreciated. J J
