about Norton Personal Firewall...I found that stuff make some mistakes...before few days i had abouth 200 attacks for few hours only....i blocked remote systems,and put them on list....but one of attackers always come back...now,very often i see norton dialog window,with text which doesn`t determine which sistem try to conect mine(no name,no alert track...,just option "block recomeded")...What is that?I`m new here...and my question is what you recomend(firewalls),my os is 2000 Prof....If I put some other Firewall,and use other Norton utilities,could be or not some figting between different stuffs? Hello to everyone here!

Patch up your 2000 at (windowsupdate.microsoft.com) and get Outpost or Zonealarm(www.zonelabs.com).

or sygate at www.sygate.com works fine for me, nortons i find tends to be problematic if your still gettin the attack trace it back and send the server administrator a email with the attack info and the ip address assigned
good look 99

I'm not a big Norton-anything fan (although SARC is awesome).
Several years ago, I bought a Norton product called PC Tools. Thinking I was being a wonderful "caregiver" to my system, I installed and ran this little program. It locked up my system tight. So, I called tech support and the ONLY thing I could do to get my system back was reformat.
Yes... I did ask for the manager of the technical group and his opinion was the same. If I recall, the problem was that my system was a PII and PC Tools hadn't been configured for the new chipset :-(
Norton Ghost, however, has been a great product for me.

I've been running Zone Alarm and Norton Utilities both with no difficulties (WinXP). Choosing a firewall other than Nortons should give you no trouble if your OS is up to date on patches.
It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...
