    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

    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...
